The Bourbon Town Board amended their bee keeping ordinance to allow the keeping of bee hives within the town limits during Tuesday’s meeting. According to Town Attorney, Mark Wagner, the wording in the new amendment is similar to that in other towns. Bee keepers will be restricted to two hives, two colonies, a 10’ setback, an appropriate apiary, and fencing.
Bourbon board members also voted unanimously to have a sidewalk installed on a property on 331. According to Wagner, he has sent several letters to the owner of the property, Jan Lemler, asking for a response to when the sidewalk would be replaced, but has not had any return contact. Street Department Superintendent, Roger Terry, will coordinate the installation and the owner will be billed for the work. The Board expressed their concern for safety since pedestrians often have to step into the highway to pass.
