S&P Upgrade

 In December 2019, the S&P upgraded the County’s credit rating from A- to AA, a two level increase that is considered “unusual” by S&P standards. The credit rating agency looks at several factors, such as the county's overall economic health status. One important factor that they review is reserve balances and cash management protocol.
