The Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kan., this year will redeem an extra $27 million of sales tax revenue bonds issued in 2005 to finance construction of a large shopping district.

The so-called STAR bonds are supported through revenue from local and state sales taxes and hotel room taxes on designated property. The 20-year revenue bonds can be issued by a local city or county government, but first must be approved by the Kansas Department of Commerce.
