DALLAS - With some trepidation, Denton County, north of Dallas and Fort Worth, will test the strength of its triple-A credit rating in a competitive sale of $104 million of general obligation bonds next week.

Bids to managing director John Martin at financial adviser Southwest Securities are due by 11 a.m. Central Daylight Time Monday by mail or on Ipreo's Parity system. Denton County commissioners will award bonds to the winner at a meeting Tuesday morning, or reject all bids.
