County OKs settlement that allows Islamic Center permit
The Culpeper County Board of Supervisors has voted to accept a settlement that allows the Islamic Center of Culpeper to obtain a permit to build a small prayer house.
The Free Lance-Star reported that the board voted 4-3 Tuesday to accept the settlement that lets the ICC obtain a pump-and-haul sewage permit after denying the group about a year ago. The county will pay the ICC $10,000 for expenses.
The Department of Justice filed suit against Culpeper County in 2016 on religious discriminatory grounds. The ICC filed a suit earlier this year.
