Inspectors say they have found no evidence of city building code violations at the former Wichita clinic of slain abortion provider George Tiller.
Tom Stolz, director of the Metropolitan Area Building and Inspection Department, says inspectors looked at the facility both before and after the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue filed a written complaint. Stolz said Thursday the inspectors could not find any evidence of work done so far that would require city permits.
The abortion rights group Trust Women has purchased the building and plans to open an abortion clinic.
Construction plans were submitted to the city last week to add bathroom and move a wall. Stolz said the department would issue a plan review Friday allowing the owners to apply for permits to perform those changes.
