The Town of Bruderheim could see more bees buzzing around in residents' backyards.
 
The town’s CAO Patty Podoborozny updated council with the work being done to address beekeeping at their Wednesday (Mar.21) meeting.
 
Some residents are interested in beekeeping within the town.
 
“Right now administration is collecting information and doing research, so that we can be properly prepared with the right policy that fits with the town, should we decide to move forward with this initiative,” said mayor Karl Hauch.
 
There is no word yet on when council will make a decision on whether to adopt a policy concerning beekeeping.
 
Other items administration is working on to bring back to council at a later date include funding for the community park, fibre optics for the town, the business community incentive program and emergency management donor policy.
