CHICAGO — The Cuyahoga County Council this week approved a measure that will allow Ohio’s most populous county to launch a bond-financed program to finance economic development projects.

County officials expect to return to market later in 2012 with a $100 million borrowing. The first note deal may be privately placed, officials said.
