Are bees allowed?  No, unless special request is granted. No citation as there is no code pertaining to honey bees. Per email from City Manager dated 12 28 2015, “A special request would need to be made through the Board of Adjustment for a special exception or to the city council to make a zoning code change to allow such a practice in the Sheldon city limits.”

If a nuisance was called: A zoning violation would be a municipal infraction with a first offense fine not to exceed $750 plus court costs for each day the violation occurs.

Additional notes: None
