The Sullivan County Legislature has determined that the installation, repair and improvement of electrical services and wiring in residential and commercial structures is a unique occupation requiring experience and skills not commonly required by persons performing other occupations. The improper installation repair and improvement of electrical wiring may create hazardous conditions for the occupants and community. The County Legislature finds the licensing of electricians is a fair and effective method to protect the public. The Board of Electrical Licensing of Sullivan County has been formed to insure the directives of the Sullivan County Legislature are followed.
