Why a permit?

I am curious to know how a citizen keeping a bee hive on their property is going to cost the town any money. Why a permit fee? I understand dogs and cats, as they are monitored by animal control - but couldn't bees be considered an agricultural item or livestock of some sort? Sure $30 isn't a lot of money, but this just sounds like a money grab. Let the bee population die out and you'll see Pender County begging you to start your hives.
