Hanover County gets AAA credit rating

Posted by Iva Radman – email

HANOVER COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - Hanover County now has a AAA credit rating from all three national credit agencies.

High ratings make it easier for counties to borrow money for construction projects or issue bonds at low interest rates.

Hanover now has more access to money when credit is tight.

Henrico and Chesterfield Counties already have AAA ratings in our area.

Henrico County's finance director tells the Times-Dispatch that within Virginia, there are more AAA-rated localities than any state in the nation.
