Reedsburg continues to strive for the highest possible rating from Moody’s Investors Services, reaffirming their confidence in the city’s financial management and its economic outlook. High bond ratings mean the city is able to sell General Obligation bonds to finance voter-approved capital projects, including new parks, libraries, pools and roads, at lower interest rates. The ratings also increase the value of existing General Obligation bonds for investors.
