The Provo City Council will review its year-old ordinance on residential bee keeping and decide it if needs any modifications.
The current ordinance allows honey bees and Mason bees to be kept in residential areas.
The Provo Herald has this article about the issue. Here are excerpts.
By law, beekeepers must register with the Utah Department of Agriculture, but the enforcement of the laws connected to beekeeping in each city are different. Salt Lake City's residential beekeeping laws are enforced by the Salt Lake County Health Department. Provo's is enforced by animal control officers.
Siufanua reports that in all of the cases when the police officers went to residents' homes, none of the resident beekeepers were registered with the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food. The police officers issued warnings in those situations.
