WICHITA - A Wichita official says an increased number of illegal dumping cases are putting a strain on city workers.
Director of Metropolitan Area Building and Construction Department Tom Stolz tells KAKE-TV (http://bit.ly/1tYrl39 ) that the city has recorded nearly 4,000 cases of discarded trash on public and private land so far this year. That's about total amount recorded in a typical year.
Stolz says some people dump items such as mattresses to avoid trash fees.
Wichita employs 15 inspectors who deal with the dumping as well as residential and zoning complaints. Stolz says the increase in waste work takes time away from other jobs. He also says the trash is unsightly.
Follower of your site on Twitter, @BushLawrence just saw your story and I am amazed this is still a problem. I worked on this issue a decade ago.
First story and 2nd 6 min mark.
Sorry to see it is still an issue.
