Bed bugs found in Wichita City Hall, officials say

The fifth floor of Wichita’s City Hall has a presence of bed bugs, the city said Thursday.

“In a public facility, maintenance challenges are not uncommon,” Van Williams, city spokesman, said in a statement from Public Works. “A treatment plan has been developed in an effort to eradicate the problem. The goal is to provide a safe environment for employees and citizens.”

The fifth floor houses some Wichita police offices, including their public relations division, public records and warrants.
