CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — The Charleston City Council will take its second vote on a plan meant to protect horses working downtown.
The plan lowers the temperature and heat index limits for horse-drawn carriage rides.
If the proposal takes effect, horses would be pulled from the streets when temperatures rise above 95-degrees.
If the heat index hits 110-degrees, carriage rides will also come to a halt.
The vote will take place at the James Island Recreation Complex at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28.
