Mayor Gattinelli, Washington Township Council and Administration are please to share the news with residents that once again Washington Township has been issued from Moody's a strong credit rating for "notable credit factors include a healthy financial position, a strong wealth and income profile, and a large tax base. The township's credit position also reflects a low debt burden and a moderate pension liability.  The township has a healthy financial position that is consistent with its assigned rating of Aa2."  According to Moody's, the purpose of its ratings is to "provide investors with a simple system of gradation by which future relative creditworthiness of securities may be gauged".

Moody's Investors Service is the bond credit rating business of Moody's Corporation, representing the company's traditional line of business and its historical name. Moody's Investors Service rates debt securities in several market segments related to public and commercial securities in the bond market. These include government, municipal and corporate bonds; managed investments such as money market funds, fixed-income funds and hedge funds; financial institutions including banks and non-bank finance companies; and asset classes in structured finance.

Along with the strong bond rating issued from Moody's, Washington Township also received accolades this year from an independent auditor Bowman and & Company, LLP.  It is evident that we continue to uphold the standard of hard work and proceed to champion a fiscally stable and secure financial portfolio.
