Ketchikan councilman drops horse ban proposal

Posted: Friday, July 06, 2001

KETCHIKAN (AP) -- Horses can breathe easier in Ketchikan now that City Council member Steve Williams has backed down from his campaign to ban horse-drawn vehicles from city streets and the downtown dock.

Williams cited a lack of support from other council members for abandoning his quest.

Last month, Williams said the horses were making a mess and should be relegated to state roads such as Tongass Avenue. Other council members opposed a ban.

Council Member Tom Coyne said that such regulations affecting summer tourism should be raised before the season, not in the middle of it.
