County Executive Ike Leggett recently announced that Montgomery County has maintained its Triple-A bond rating for 2018 from all three Wall Street bond rating agencies.
Fitch, Moody’s, and Standard & Poor’s all affirmed the “AAA” rating – the highest achievable -- for the County. They all termed Montgomery County’s outlook as “stable.”
The Triple-A bond rating enables Montgomery County to sell long-term bonds at the most favorable rates, saving County taxpayers millions of dollars over the life of the bonds. The rating also serves as a benchmark for numerous other financial transactions, ensuring the lowest possible costs in those areas as well.
