At-large City Councilor Steve Murphy wants to bring back the Boston Police mounted unit, disbanded in 2009.
In a request for a formal hearing on the issue, Murphy writes:
The Mounted Police Unit provided a sense of security and comfort to residents and visitors.
The council considers Murphy's hearing request at its regular Wednesday meeting, which begins at noon in its fifth-floor chambers in City Hall.
