CyberWarNews reports that it was the vendors subdomain which was defaced and the source of the leaked data.  Misleadingly, that web page now states:

Thank you for visiting this City of Wichita web site. The site
is unavailable for a scheduled maintenance outage.
We appreciate your patience.

CyberWarNews also provides a description of the leaked databases and reports:

The leak was announced a few hours ago by @AgentCorporatio who appears to be either a member or ex member of the well known Turkish Ajan hacker group but is going by the name Agent Hacker Group.
