County Bond Status Upgraded

County Executive Ed Day announced on Friday that Standard and Poor’s rating services upgraded the county’s bond rating from BBB- to BBB with a positive outlook. Day stated in a release from his office that the upgrade represents all the county has accomplished in stabilizing finances over the last year. The BBB rating means that the county has a good chance of meeting financial commitments. The rating from S&P is added to last year’s upgrade from Moody’s Investor’s Service from BAA-2 to BAA-3 with a positive change in the county’s original $138 million deficit, “We’ve made the tough decisions to cut government spending, improve management and tighten procurement processes. Our work isn’t done, and we will continue to make substantive, fiscally responsible reforms to improve the county’s finances.”
