All electricians who work in the Town of Oyster Bay must be licensed by the Town. The Examining Board of Electricians tests all applicants for the license. The five members of the board are appointed by the Town Board and select a chairman from their membership. Homeowners may do their own electrical work, upon approval, after an oral interview at the Building Division. Residents can call to find out if any electrician they are considering hiring is licensed by the Town.
