Hanover County's AAA bond rating at risk

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Hanover County might lose it's AAA bond rating.

That's what one agency warned to Hanover County leaders.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Moody's modified the county's status to a negative outlook.

This means the county is at risk of a downgrade in the next year or two.

Meanwhile, Henrico County recently reported it was one of the first counties in the nation to receive its AAA bond rating by all three major agencies.
