ARKANSAS CITY, Kansas — City Hall and the Arkansas City Police Department are closed, effective immediately, due to a possible pipe bomb that was brought in to police by a concerned citizen.

Central Avenue is blocked off from Summit to First streets, as well as adjacent alleys, so please avoid this area until further notice. The Wichita Police Department’s bomb squad is en route to assist. The area has been evacuated, except for essential personnel.

We anticipate that City Hall will open as normal at 8 a.m. Monday. Sorry for any inconvenience!
