The Lafayette City-Parish Council votes unanimously to allow beekeepers to open shop within Lafayette city limits.
Before the vote, beekeepers could only operate in the unincorporated areas of Lafayette Parish, and were prohibited from keeping bees inside Lafayette city limits.
City officials say there's agricultural need for beekeepers, which is why the issue was presented to the council.
