SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego County has apologized to a pastor and his wife who were cited and told to get a permit for a weekly Bible study session held at their Bonita home.
In a letter dated Wednesday, the county's chief administrative officer Walter Ekard said the citation should never have been issued and a permit is not required.
Ekard blamed the mistake on "unclear language in the zoning ordinance." He also said the county is taking steps to improve its policies and procedures.
In April, David Jones and his wife Mary were told they could be fined $100 to $1,000 if they didn't comply with county codes that prohibit holding religious assemblies without a major-use permit.
Five to 27 people attend the gatherings.
