Horse-drawn carriage coming to Scottsbluff community

Posted: Updated:

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and soon the Scottsbluff community will be adding a horse–drawn carriage into the mix.

The service will offer horse–drawn buggy rides through Scottsbluff to paying customers.

City Officials were initially wary of approving the proposal because no city ordinance specifically addresses horse drawn–vehicles.

But Mayor Randy Meininger says it's important for the city to open it's arms to new business opportunities.

"I see it as two things.  One, I see it as a business and I would like us to be business friendly," says Meininger.  "But I think safety is a huge concern."

The horse–drawn carriage will operate under the city's ‘taxi–cab ordinance' temporarily for the holidays, while city staff works on a more specific ordinance.
