Simpler property code goes into effect

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) -  What the Capital City is calling straightforward, easier to understand code requirements went into effect Tuesday. It’s a story Kansas First News first reported when they were adopted in April.

It applies to all residential and nonresidential structures and premises. Code inspectors and municipal judges have attended training on the new code. The code covers property exteriors, broken down vehicles, trash, and weeds.  Code inspectors will also now have mobile devices to help them better do their work while out in the field.

Over the next month, the city will release more articles to help educate residents on the changes.  Look for these examples on http://www.nextdoor.com and in your neighborhood’s newsletter.
