Travis County gets all A’s

Tuesday, April 10, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Today, Moody’s Investors Service and S&P Global Ratings affirmed Travis County’s bond ratings at Aaa and AAA, respectively. This is the highest investment bond rating, and Travis County is one of only seven counties in Texas to receive it. A good bond rating means better interest rates for the county. “Travis County’s bond ratings are a testament of the hard work this Commissioners Court does to maintain strong financial policies and practices so that we can maximize our limited resources when making infrastructure investments in our community,” said County Judge Sarah Eckhardt in the county’s press release. “These bond ratings reflect the confidence the rating agencies have in Travis County’s management of tax dollars.” This is the 18th year in a row that the county has received this superior rating.
