KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) - Kennesaw’s city council could reconsider its decision to reject plans for a strip mall when it meets Wednesday night.

The city council last week voted 4-1 against the request. About 10 protesters had gathered outside City Hall before the vote, waving American flags and signs saying “no mosque.”

Kennesaw police officer Scott Luther tells WSB Radio that extra security will be on hand for the meeting.

Mayor Mark Mathews told The Marietta Daily Journal that he would like to see the issue brought up at the meeting, though it’s up to the council whether they want to revisit the issue.

The issue has been a contentious one, and the mosque’s lawyer said his client is considering a lawsuit if the decision stands.
