WASHINGTON -- District of Columbia officials hope to go to market in mid-September with a $332 million bond issue designed to eliminate the city's accumulated deficit, Ellen M. O'Connor, the city's deputy mayor for finance, said yesterday.

Ms. O'Connor, who spoke four days after Congress cleared the way for the bond issue, said she "would love" to see the bonds on the market by Sept. 12, but added that the issue may not be offered until Sept. 17. The city's plans are still tentative, she said.
