Meeting to Discuss Possible Lawsuit Today

By Angela Hatton

Mayfield, KY – Members of the Somali Muslim community in Mayfield plan to meet with the American Civil Liberties Union and an Islam advocacy group this afternoon. Attendees plan to discuss the possibility of taking legal action against the city of Mayfield. The Somali Muslims had petitioned to open a mosque. The city zoning board denied the conditional use permit earlier this month based on parking availability. Islamaca International spokesperson Bethany Bin Beyette says if the ACLU chooses not to seek legal action, Islamaca will.
