Wichita City Council amends ordinances for scooters and skateboards

June 18, 2019 - 11:38 am

The Wichita City Council amended two ordinances, covering the operation of electric-assisted scooters and motorized skateboards.

The council approved the proposed ordinances two weeks ago but wanted to clarify some provisions related to scooters and skateboards that are privately-owned.  

Those provisions addressing skateboards were removed from the proposed amendments and city staff has been consulting with skateboard owners to get their feedback.  The city will soon meet with owners of electric-assisted scooters.

An ordinance amendment will be submitted for council review and approved after meetings with all stakeholders are completed.
