Kluger Furs FS Sept5 – Oct 6 2019

A Flossmoor resident and his family are now the village's first beekeepers.

An ordinance allowing beekeeping went into effect April 1.

Chris Bednarek, his wife and daughter are the first people in Flossmoor to keep beehives in their backyard. They also are the first and only residents to apply for a permit since the village board gave beekeeping the green light in February, Building and Zoning Administrator Scott Bugner said.
