KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) - Kennesaw city leaders will soon decide whether to allow a temporary mosque at a strip mall in the community northwest of Atlanta.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports that the Kennesaw City Council is expected to vote on the proposal Monday night.

WSB-TV reports that the temporary mosque would be placed at the corner of a strip mall on Jiles Road for as long as two years.

Mayor Mark Matthews told the Atlanta station that most of the objections are based on religious grounds, but the city planned to review the proposal based simply on code compliance.

The group applying for the permit told city leaders that as many as 20 families would worship at the center until they can find a permanent home.
