City Hall & Roads Back Open After Corn Starch Scare
SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane City Hall is returning to normal after an unidentified white powdery substance was identified by authorities as a cornstarch based packaging product.
The building was closed to the public Monday afternoon after the powder was discovered while a city worker was opening mail.
City spokeswoman Marlene Feist said the powder was found on the third floor in an area used by the planning and business services departments.
The City Council Briefing Session will be held as usual, but members of the public won't be allowed in the building. The session will be carried live on CityCable 5 and on the web at www.spokanecity.org.
