logo for the bee laws website


Are bees allowed? Yes. City Code has nothing regarding honey bees under animal control, nuisance, or livestock. Use path http://ci.marshalltown.ia.us/ > Quick Links > City Code

If a nuisance was called: There is no code to enforce. Bee hives could possibly fall under general, public nuisance with little city support.

Additional notes: Code is updated on the website annually, in person it is updated frequently, per website. Download the Index to find topic: http://ci.marshalltown.ia.us/admin/uploads/documents/code_2012_index.pdf
