The Abilene City Council voted to publish a notice of intent to issue up to $23.1 million in bonds that would fund the public portion of a downtown hotel project.

The funds specifically are the for the convention center portion of the hotel project, which will be integrated into the planned 200-key, full service hotel.

State law requires the city to publish a notice of intent to issue bonds at least 45 days prior to approving a bond issue.

The resolution passed Thursday directs staff to publish the notice of intent.

If final approval is granted at the council’s Aug. 12 meeting, the bonds will be used to design, construct and equip facilities, including conference and meeting rooms, a ballroom and related infrastructure and parking.
