Moody’s Investor Service has upgraded East Hampton Village’s bond rating from Aa2 to Aa1, indicating a very strong capacity to meet financial commitments.
The provider of credit ratings and risk analysis cited the village’s sizable and affluent tax base and modest debt burden as strong indicators of its financial position.
The upgrade, according to a release issued by Mayor Paul F. Rickenbach Jr. and the village board, followed the village’s decision to refinance a series of bonds, resulting in savings of almost $225,000.
