Stafford Gets Major Credit For Credit
JoAnne Carter from the firm Public Financial Management was effusive in her praise for Stafford County’s financial management. Some of the goals the supervisors set a year ago have already been met, and maintaining those goals will only make the county look better int he eyes of the bond rating agencies.
“I was truly impressed” Carter said after her annual review. “It has put the county on very firm footing in terms of enhancing your bond rating.”
Carter said the ratings could improve soon because of the board’s actions.
So what’s next? I’m not sure, but if the county wants to borrow money, they seem to be in a pretty good place.
