Moody’s upgrades the Town of Easton General Obligation bonds to Aa2 from Aa3
Moody’s Investors Service has upgraded to Aa2 from Aa3 the rating on the Town of Easton’s $11.9 million in outstanding general obligation bonds. The action taken on February 27 concludes a review for possible upgrade by Moody’s in conjunction with their updated local government general obligation methodology. The Moody’s rating states that “The upgrade to Aa2 reflects the town’s strengthened financial position supported by strong reserve levels. The rating also reflects the town’s moderately-sized economic base that serves as a regional center, improved wealth levels, and low debt burden.”
A public meeting was held in the Council Chambers on January 21st, 2014 to discuss revisions to the Impact Fee Study.
