Are bees allowed within city limits?

No.  Beekeeping is not presently allowed within city limits.  Title 6, "Animals", of the Oskaloosa Municipal Code states that it is "unlawful for a person to keep within the city such bothersome animals as barking dogs, bees, cattle, horses, swine and sheep which tend to disrupt the peace and good order of the community".
