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.
