County OKs set­tle­ment that al­lows Is­lamic Cen­ter per­mit

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

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.
