Police to hold annual blight tow project


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

The city will give a seven-day 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 on May 9, per City Ordinance 11.97.010 (b) (1). 

The efforts are to help keep vehicles from becoming a nuisance or creating potentially hazardous conditions. 

To report a nuisance vehicle, please call or visit a WPD substation from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Those locations and phone numbers are:

Patrol East, 350 S. Edgemoor, (316) 350-3420
