CHICKAMUAGA, GA (Times Free Press) -- Couples getting married at the Gordon-Lee Mansion in Walker County, Ga., sometimes take a horse-drawn carriage ride around Chickamauga's historic downtown.
Because of those short jaunts, and because carriage operators have expressed interest in offering regular rides to tourists, the city has drafted an ordinance to regulate horse-drawn carriage operations.
"We look forward to someone coming and giving it a shot," City Manager John Culpepper said. "We've had one or two folks ask about it."
The new law, City Councilman Jim Staub said, is a way to stave off possible lawsuits. "Primarily, it's to protect the city of any liabilities that might occur," he said.
