Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.
The records: Warrants issued by Wichita Municipal Court.
Why you'd want them: to see if you or someone you know has a warrant in municipal court. The records go back five years.
Where you get the records: They are online at www.wichita.gov. Click on the "Warrant Search" link under the "How Do I?" menu. Or go directly to http://bit.ly/d3PnKW.
How much it will cost: The information is free.
