CHICAGO -St. Louis will enter the market early next month with $44 million of new-money leasehold revenue bonds that will carry the city's highest rating in 35 years, Comptroller Darlene Green said yesterday.

The deal includes two series, one for nearly $25 million that will finance a range of capital projects including improvements to the city's juvenile detention center. The second for $19.5 million will help cover the city's annual required contribution for fiscal 2008 to its police and firefighter pension funds.
