Beekeeping Allowed In Columbus

Columbus, NE~~The Columbus City Council approved residential beekeeping at its meeting Monday night.  
An old ordinance had classified bees as exotic animals which meant residents had to obtain an exotic animal permit to house bees. 

The new ordinance now allows residence to apply for a beekeeper permit.  The permit fee is $20 dollars and all residents and businesses within 300 feet of the bees must be notified before the permit will be approved by the city.
