Perry City Council will review Tuesday a proposed beekeeping ordinance, which would allow the hobby within city limits as long as certain guidelines are followed.
The council agenda includes a public hearing at its 6 p.m. meeting, followed by a first reading. Council will read the item again at its Oct. 16 meeting and cast a final vote.
Beekeeping has become popular in the city, following a national trend. Council has been reviewing regulations with the help of the local beekeepers organization after two complaints were made this summer.
The proposed ordinance regulates the number of hives allowed on private property and maintenance of the bees. It also requires all hives to be registered with the city, with no attached fee.
The council agenda also includes a public hearing and first reading for an ordinance establishing storm utility districts.
