Stephanie York, a spokeswoman for Mayor Don Plusquellic, said the pipe was on the third floor, which houses the City Council chambers, the council clerk’s office and general offices.
Kaboom said he had to check the stick outside the council to pass through security before Monday’s meeting. He failed to retrieve the rod when he left, and apparently it remained there until it was noticed yesterday.
