The American Legion of St. Joseph was fined $1,000 for selling liquor to an underage buyer.
The City Council approved the fine at a meeting April 1.
During an alcohol compliance check conducted by the St. Joseph Police Department in December, alcohol was sold to a person under the legal drinking age of 21.
This violation is the second one in the past 24 months for the Legion.
According to documents submitted at the meeting, the American Legion Post acknowledged the sale and agreed to pay the minimum civil penalty of $1,000.
