The City of Rawlins, WY publishes their Municipal Code here.
Title 6 is labeled "Animals" and bees are specifically mentioned:
Section 6.05.020 Permit-Required. It is unlawful for any person to keep, maintain, pasture, stable, corral or house within the city and within one half mile beyond the corporate limits of the city, any livestock, wild animals, domestic fowl, bees or exotic pets without first obtaining a permit therefor, except upon the action of the city manager, or his designee, for special events and recognized youth programs. (Ord. No. 4-97, Enacted, 04/15/97)
Section 6.05.040 Permit-Fee A. Upon approval of permits for the keeping, maintaining, pasturing or stabling of all such livestock, wild animals, bees or exotic pets a permit shall be issued by the city clerk upon the payment of any permittee of an annual license fee. B. The amount of the annual license fee and duration of validity for the permits shall be established from time to time by resolution of the city council and be avail able to the applicant at the office of the city clerk or designee. (Ord. No. 4 -97, Enacted, 04/15/97)
Section 6.05.050 Permit-Applicant investigation. The city manager or his designee, shall, upon receipt of an application for a permit required by the provisions of this chapter, take such action upon the application as in their judgment will best serve, promote and protect the public health and welfare of the city. Denial may be appealed to the Rawlins City Council. (Ord. No. 4 - 97, Enacted, 04/15/97)
It appears to me that whether or not you might have bees in Rawlins is decided on a case by case basis.
