Upgraded Bond Rating for Avra Valley Fire District
We are VERY excited to share a bit of news with you related to our District. We just received notification from Moody’s Investor Services that they are upgrading our bond credit rating from a Baa2 to an A3. This change represents a full two tier upgrade which the Moody’s representative said, “happens very seldomly.”   Moody’s noted that our District has performed with  “strong fiscal management, a solid management team and conservative budgeting.”
