Horse-drawn carriage issues back before Beaufort City Council

Flickr user smartbydesign

Does anything cause as much consistent controversy in this city as horse-drawn carriages? Seriously, other issues come and go, but seems the carriages and the controversy that comes with them are here to stay.

Seems the City Council is considering further regulating the carriage companies, which can't get along and squabble over any number of issues. And if it's not the carriage companies fighting then it's the residents complaining about the horse urine on the street in front of their homes (they've got a point there.)

You can read the full writeup and how the carriage issue is part of a larger tourism discussion over at The Island Packet.
