WESTMINSTER — Leisure Health Spa of Westminster has complied with state registration guidelines, but paid a fine for missing the Sept. 1 deadline.
Steven Sakomota-Wengel, administrator for health club registration in the state Attorney General's Office, said last week that Leisure submitted its registration before a Dec. 13 public hearing scheduled to discuss the failure to register of Leisure and 21 other similar clubs in the state.
While Leisure had filed some registration paperwork, it had not filed a statement from a certified public accountant verifying it had enough bonding to cover membership refunds in case the club went out of business. Sakomota-Wengel said Leisure filed the accountant's statement just before the scheduled hearing and "agreed to pay a small penalty to settle the matter."
Attorney General J. Joseph Curran hadcited the 22 clubs in late November for failing to meet the registration deadline.
