Petersburg bond rating upgraded

The City of Petersburg’s bond rating was upgraded from BBB+ to A+ by S&P Global Ratings, and to an A2 with intent to an A1 by Moody’s Investors Service. Obligations rated A2 by Moody’s are considered upper-medium grade and are subject to low credit risk.

S&P said the upgrade “reflects our view of Petersburg’s adherence to improved management practices and policies as well as the city’s achievement in restoring fiscal stability by bolstering reserves and liquidity,” according to a release from the city. Moody’s said it also reflects achievement in the city’s financial position with increased reserves and liquidity.
