Moody's Investors Service has recently assigned a MIG 1 rating to the Town of Weston's General Obligation Bond Anticipation Notes and affirmed the Aaa long-term rating on the Town's outstanding general obligation bonds.  


The Aaa rating reflects a stable financial position, manageable debt burden and pension liability, and the aggressive funding strategy towards its OPEB liability. The MIG 1 rating reflects the strong long-term credit characteristics, sufficient management of refinancing risk and ample liquidity. 


Moody's also confirmed a stable outlook, which reflects its expectation that Weston will maintain a sound financial position bolstered by strong fiscal management. It also incorporates the Town’s commitment to addressing its long-term liabilities while maintaining a conservative approach to budgeting and expenditure management. The history of taxpayer support for capital expenditures also provides stability.


The high rating Weston receives, means a lower interest rate for borrowing, which ultimately helps the taxpayer.
