Bar's messy event required hours of cleanup in Columbia

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The city of Columbia may fine a bar in downtown after city workers spent hours cleaning up a mess created by a party that required lots of fake snow.

The Columbia Missourian reports the city is tracking the hours that workers spent cleaning as well as working with the police to determine the potential fines for My House Nightclub & Sports Bar.

Community Relations Director Steven Sapp says the bar was stuffed with fake snow for its "Xmas at the Beach" party on Saturday night. He says, by Monday morning, the fake snow was in the streets, sidewalks, alleys and storm drains.

My House general manager Adam Lowe says the product is a biodegradable, water-soluble cornstarch meant to dissolve with no harmful effects.
