911 dispatchers confirm the building was evacuated during Tuesday night’s caucus meeting. They confirm the envelope was from Sharpsville and addressed to council president Tom Smith and councilwoman MaryAnne Gavrile.

Officials say two people came in contact with the substance, and others were possibly exposed.

New Castle News reports police say there wasn’t enough substance in the envelope to immediately test it.
