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.

“The details of such a requirement are yet to be worked out in committee meetings over the next two sessions, so be certain to come out or call in to participate in that conversation,” Conrad said in his message.

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.
