Moody's Investors Service Assigns Concord Aaa Bond Rating

Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Aaa rating to the Town of Concord Massachusetts' $6.7 million General Obligation Municipal Purpose Loan of 2018 Bonds. Concurrently, we maintain the Aaa rating on the town's outstanding general obligation bonds.


RATINGS RATIONALE
The Aaa rating reflects a healthy financial position supported by strong reserves, an affluent tax base, below average debt burden, and well-managed pension and OPEB liabilities.

RATING OUTLOOK
The stable outlook reflects our expectation that the town will continue to exercise sound fiscal management including multi-year forecasting and effective policies. The outlook also incorporates continuing voter support when needed to approved debt exclusions and general overrides to Proposition 2.5.
