DETROIT (AP) -- A member of Detroit's City Council wants to know whether goats and sheep might help deal with tall grass on overgrown lots.

James Tate plans to bring in an expert Thursday to a council committee meeting to speak about allowing sheep and goats to graze on vacant properties.

Detroit has thousands of vacant lots. Tate tells MLive.com this wouldn't be citywide, but might be a good option for some neighborhoods.

Some other cities allow animals to trim grass. Tate says it could save money and would be "an inventive way" to deal with tall grass.
