SAN FRANCISCO - San Diego County plans to sell $85 million of tax-exempt certificates of participation next week to refinance its main jail and courthouse.

The county is hoping to draw retail interest, with strong credit ratings and serial maturities from 2010 to 2025. The current refunding will take out COPs sold in 1997 and 1998 to finance construction of the county's Hall of Justice and Central Jail. The debt is being sold through the San Diego County Capital Asset Leasing Corp.
