Council Asks Carriage Drivers to Clean Up Pee

Horse carriage drivers in Memphis are already required to clean up manure, but the Memphis City Council's Public Safety Committee passed an ordinance this morning that would require drivers to clean up horse urine as well.

Councilwoman Janis Fullilove asked if drivers would be required to carry a bucket of water and physically scrub the urine off of streets. But she was told other cities use a deodorizing solution that can be sprayed onto puddles of urine.

It wasn't made clear if drivers would have to stop in the middle of a tour to clean or if they'd only be required to clean up urine when carriages are parked along Beale Street and in front of the Peabody Place Hotel. The ordinance must pass three readings before it becomes law.
