After a slight delay, Philadelphia yesterday evening priced a $150 million private placement of taxable and tax-exempt deficit notes, a city official said yesterday.

A tentative pricing scale released late last night pegged the tax-exempts at par to yield 7.50%, and the taxable notes priced at par to yield 8.50%, according to Anthony M. Griffith, a vice president at A.H. Williams & Co., the marketing agent on the deal. The Bond Buyer one-year note index was 4.49% last Wednesday.
