The Memphis City Council will consider new rules that would require all city employees to live in Memphis.

Now, employees hired after 2002 have to live in Shelby County. Employees hired before that have to live within two hours of Memphis.

Kemp Conrad, city council chairman, said in his post-meeting wrap-up Wednesday that the council will consider over the next month a new ordinance to mandate all city employees live in the city.

Earlier this year, the city’s Public Safety Task Force considered relaxing residency rules already in place to help recruit more employees to the city’s fire and police divisions.
