Scientology Cathedral Could Cost Church $400,000 In Fines

Playing a “shell game” with the city could cost the Church of Scientology more than $400,000.

The city’s code enforcement Board reduced a $451,500 fine for expired permits to $413,500 during its meeting Wednesday. However, that was a large difference from the $45,250 an attorney for the Church offered. Now, church officials said they are looking at their next options, which could include appealing the fine in circuit court.
