ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- The Missouri Athletic Club (MAC) could soon be shut down.
After repeated complaints were made against the private club, the MAC is now under a strict watch by the City of St. Louis for violating the smoking ban.
Earlier this year, the MAC was cited and fined by the city for violating the smoking ban, but the St. Louis Health Department has learned that the private club is still non compliant with the ordinance.
While the MAC is a private organization, St. Louis officials say the club must obey the city’s smoking ban because it is a place of employment.
Repeated violations could cause the City of St. Louis to shut down the MAC.
