IN THE NEWS... CITY'S BOND RATING UPGRADED
In 2009, the City’s bond rating was upgraded by Standard and Poor's (S&P) to AA+. This rating denotes a high credit-quality investment grade. Only 12 other municipalities in the State of Minnesota have received this rating. Out of 112 municipalities in the State of Minnesota rated by S&P, only 22 have received a rating of AA+ or higher.
Many factors go into the rating process including economic diversity, financial performance and flexibility, debt burden, and financial management practices. The City’s ability to implement timely and sound financial and operational decisions in response to economic and fiscal demands is a primary determinant of changes in credit quality. An outstanding credit rating keeps the cost of financing capital projects as low as possible providing a substantial savings to taxpayers.
If you have questions regarding a special assessment on your property, please contact Cindy Nelson at 763-433-9822 to obtain information about the payoff amount. Please note that a special assessment is a lien against the property for payment of an improvement to the property by the City (such as street reconstruction).
