CHICAGO — Chicago is planning several bond sales in the coming months, starting on Tuesday with its nearly $1 billion new-money and refunding O’Hare International Airport-related revenue deal that’s been on hold due to interest rate conditions since mid-November.

Mayor Richard Daley yesterday introduced ordinances at a City Council meeting seeking approval to sell up to $80 million of tender notes. He also introduced an ordinance that preserves the city’s ability to use proceeds of a general obligation sale of up to $425 million planned for later this year to reimburse itself for expenses now being incurred. Both measures will come up for Finance Committee review next month and need approval from the full council.
