HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -- The City Planning Commission, represented by Phil Meyer, Director of Community and Neighborhood Services, recommended that the ordinance banning beehive keeping in residential areas in the City of Holland stay in place. Two citizens of Holland were on hand to ask that the City Council consider changing the ordinance to allow beekeeping in the city. The point they made is that honeybees are not dangerous and help by pollinating crops. They asked that the Council give the matter further study and to reject the recommendation of the Planning Commission. The matter will be taken up at the next study session on July 24th.
