A. The purpose of this chapter is to establish requirements for sound beekeeping practices for hobby beekeeping, so that the hobby beekeeping does not become a nuisance. These requirements are intended to avoid problems that may otherwise result from the keeping of bees in populated urban areas.
B. In addition to the requirements set forth in this chapter, all beekeepers shall maintain their bee colonies in a manner that complies with the provisions of the Illinois bees and apiaries act1, or any successor thereto, as amended. (Ord. 13-12-43)
