WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A party on wheels could be coming to West Lafayette. The city is working on an ordinance ahead of the possibility of pedal carriages.

According to city officials some companies that run the so-called "pedal bars" have sparked interest in the area. The city council wants to make sure rules are in place ahead of their arrival.

This includes mapping out appropriate routes with law enforcement. Other regulations spelled out in the ordinance are permit fees and how long passengers can stay on the ride.

Deputy Director of Development Erin Easter said the city's focus is safety.

"It won't operate as a taxi, you know you're not going to be able to hop off the pedal bar at Harry's and then hop back on. When you're on you're on for the ride," said Easter. 

The ordinance will have two readings, the first at Monday night's city council meeting.
