Supervisors Chairman Hickman: ‘That’s how a resourceful government operates’
Maricopa County continues to hold a AAA bond rating by the three major credit rating agencies for its continual economic growth and strong financial operation.
The credit rating agency, Moody’s Investor Service, acknowledges the county’s stable outlook in supporting tax revenue growth and tax base appreciation. A strong credit rating will allow county bonds to issue lower interest rates and provide financial flexibility, according to a release.
“I’m committed to spending within our means, smarter investing, and budgeting for the unexpected,” Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Clint Hickman, District 4, said in the release. “The board will continue to support taxpayers by providing financial stability and staying within our mandates.”
