‘Bees-ness’ not as usual: Bee infestation forces Queen Creek Town Council to relocate June 4 meeting

The June 4 work study and regular meetings of the Queen Creek Town Council have been moved to the Zane Grey Room in the Queen Creek Branch Library, 21802 S Ellsworth Road, due to a large bee infestation in council chambers at the town hall, 22350 S. Ellsworth Road, according to the town’s website.

Both meetings will begin at their normal times, Marnie Schubert, the town’s spokeswoman, said in a phone interview. The work study session will begin at 5:30 p.m. The regular meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

The infestation was discovered June 4 when a staff member noticed bee carcasses in the council chambers, Ms. Schubert said. Staff members investigated the attic above the council chambers and found the infestation, Ms. Schubert said.

The town hall will be closed for a few days while a professional crew deals with the problem, Ms. Schubert said.
