The Grand Haven City Council last night approved a measure that moves forward a bond-financed plan to build a Hilton hotel and a convention center on a large waterfront development in the western Michigan city.

The City Council approved two measures for the proposal, including one that authorizes the creation of a nonprofit organization that would issue the bonds — around $20 million worth, according to local reports — and oversee the construction and operation of the project, said council member John Naser. Another measure approves a feasibility study for the project.
