BRADENTON, Fla. — Broward County in southeast Florida later this month plans to sell $220.2 million of revenue bonds, most of which will be taxable Build America Bonds. The deal represents the county’s first use of BABs and the first time it will leverage a local half-cent sales tax.

Proceeds will go toward the construction of a $338 million, 20-story, courthouse complex, which will also be funded with $120 million of available capital funds.
