The president of Custom Janitorial Services and Supplies is facing federal charges alleging he embezzled nearly $1 million.
The St. Louis Business Journal reports that 54-year-old Herman Schamber of St. Louis worked out of the main Alexandria, Va. office of National Janitorial Services Inc. and also owned and operated the another company, Custom Janitorial Services, out of the East Rutherford, N.J. area. The Business Journal explains:
Bars in St. Louis that are thinking about applying for an exemption to the city's smoking ban will have to count any tents they use to expand seating areas toward the square footage total that allows them to get that exemption.
The city's ban includes language that lets bars smaller than 2,000 square feet and where "the serving of food is only incidental to the consumption" of alcoholic beverages to allow their patrons to smoke until January 1, 2016.
