Are bees allowed?  Yes. There are no restrictions. (No digital citation as there is no code regarding honey bees.)

If a nuisance was called: There is no code on which to found a nuisance complaint. The City would try to get neighbors to negotiate agreeable conditions.

Additional notes: Livestock is defined as vertebrate.
