Minor Changes to Electrical Code
The Village Board passed an ordinance in February that makes
minor changes to the adopted electrical code. The Village utilizes
the National Electrical Code , 2014 Edition, as its currently adopted code,
but doing so requires clarifying some specific provisions that the Village
does not adopt. Those changes include prohibiting the use of aluminum or copper clad wiring for branch circuits, setting a minimum wire size that can be used on some circuits, setting the minimum amperage allowed for
electrical service, and setting specific requirements for smoke detectors,
carbon monoxide detectors, and GFI circuits. All of the changes are made with the intent of improving the health, safety and welfare of Village residents.
