CHICAGO —  Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s finance team will introduce to the City Council this week an ordinance seeking approval to refund up to $1.75 billion of O’Hare International Airport general airport revenue bonds and passenger facility charge bonds for savings.

The administration will also submit general obligation and water revenue bond authorizations, officials confirmed Friday. They said the underwriters were named last week and Barclays Capital was chosen to run the books on the airport deal. The city does not publicly release its deal teams until they are submitted to council.
