What options does a private property owner have for addressing vehicles that are parked on their property without their permission?

Generally, restriction of parking on private property is the responsibility of the property owner. Property owners and their agents can restrict parking on their property (i.e. employee-only, customer-only, time-limited, etc.). Private property owners have multiple options available to them in order to address unwanted parking on their property, including having the vehicle towed (provided that the appropriate signage identified in Section 11.99.030 of the Wichita Municipal Code are in place).

For more information on towing from a private lot, please see the Enforcement section of the Municipal Code. Private property owners are encouraged to consult their legal counsel for questions related to parking enforcement on their property.
