GLENS FALLS — The Building and Codes Committee has added language to the proposed lighting law putting a 60-watt cap on all exterior light fixtures.

A section detailing how the law will be enforced and what penalties will accompany enforcement was also added.

During the Building and Codes Committee workshop discussing the law on Wednesday night, Diana Palmer, the 3rd Ward councilwoman and chair of the committee, said she has had people reach out to her voicing their approval of the law.

But she also received an email from a resident of the 3rd Ward who felt that more detail in the law was necessary.

“They said that they supported the law, but they felt that we needed to be more detailed with our lumens and things like that,” Palmer said.
