Beekeeper Objects To County Crackdown On Unkempt Lawns


There’s two sides to every story… and a local beekeeper wants people to hear the other side of a new county ordinance. 

 

The Sangamon County Board recently passed a measure aimed at fixing overgrown and unsightly lawns in unincorporated parts of the county.  But Arvin Pierce says those long weeds and high grass are a haven for the bees he maintains on his property… and if the county comes in to cut them down, as the new ordinance allows, it could be damaging to his hives. 

 

He’s hoping the county will move cautiously with implementing the new law.
