Are bees allowed?  Perhaps. There is no city code to prohibit or regulate honey bees. Its definition of Agriculture does not mention honey bees. City would defer to state law.

If a nuisance was called: There is no code on which to found an Animal Nuisance complaint or zoning violation.

Additional notes: None
