Wichita's blight tow project begins May 9

May 01, 2019 - 11:15 am

The Wichita Police Department (WPD) is holding its third annual citywide operation to remove inoperable vehicles, stored trailers, and vehicles without current tags from city streets.

The City of Wichita will give a seven-day media notice to all citizens for removal of such vehicles.  Once the vehicle is marked for tow with a green sticker, the owner will have 48 hours to remove the vehicle from the street or the vehicle will be towed.  Officers will begin towing vehicles on Thursday May 9.

These efforts are to help keep vehicles from becoming a nuisance or creating potentially hazardous conditions.  These efforts are also aimed at improving the appearance of local neighborhoods and maintaining safety.

To report a nuisance vehicle, please call or visit the WPD substation where the vehicle is located from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

Those locations and phone numbers are:
