— It remains unclear how, even whether, St. James Catholic Church will be able to complete its renovations to add seating, restrooms and parking.
Belvidere City Council voted 6-3 Monday to reject a request to extend the church’s special-use permit one year. This will force architects to stay on schedule and complete the 15-month project by September 2013.
