People stand in line to go inside the Grand Haven outer light on Sept. 2.

On Monday, the Grand Haven City Council agreed to submit a grant application on behalf of the Grand Haven Lighthouse Conservancy to the Michigan Lighthouse Assistance Program.

The local lighthouse preservation group is seeking to receive $60,000 to pay for the restoration work around the south pier entrance light. The city is required to provide $48,000 in matching funds, which will be reimbursed by the Grand Haven Lighthouse Conservancy Fund.
