Montevideo City Council opens way for church to locate to downtown area


MONTEVIDEO -- Montevideo City Council members agreed to make it possible for a church to operate in a downtown building while also preserving the ability to continue issuing liquor licenses in its vicinity.

By its actions Monday, the City Council resolved a dilemma posed by a request from the Iglesia Christiana Rayo de Luz church. Armando Castenada requested a conditional use permit for the church to operate in the former City Side building at 301 South First Street.
