We get it. These are not earth-shattering issues or big crimes but rather little neighborhood nuisances that can affect your quality of life. Here are some of the most common neighborhood nuisances.  These ordinances are in Wichita, but most of these are against city code in some form or fashion for residents of other cities and towns across Kansas.  Check with your local police or city hall for more information.
