HUTCHINSON, Kan. — City of Hutchinson Building Official Izzy Rivera plans to give those folks who need to clean up their yards a chance to do it this month before looking at Code Enforcement actions.

"This month, we're going to relax our Code Enforcement, our code actions," Rivera said. "We're not going to be sending out people to cite violations. Instead, what we're going to be doing is handing out the flyers informing them of the cleanup day."

The City of Hutchinson will once again hold its annual City Wide Clean Up on the weekend of April 24-25. Dumpsters will be placed throughout the city for residents to use free of charge.

"Hopefully, that will address a lot of the concerns we may find when we do our drive-throughs around town," Rivera said. "We're working with the citizens, rather than attacking them. I prefer a friendlier approach."

While violators will not be issued a notice of violation at this time, there will be follow-up. Here is a map of the dumpster locations.
