The Palm Springs City Hall lobby was evacuated Wednesday due to a suspicious device discovered on the building’s front lawn.
The device was located at 9 a.m. by a landscaping crew, and a county hazardous materials team was called to the scene to investigate, Palm Springs police Sgt. Mike Casavan said.
Casavan said the nature of the object wasn’t immediately known.
City officials urged the public to steer clear of the building and the adjacent Palm Springs Dog Park until further notice.
