AAA bond rating may be possible for Bristol

Since Oct. 1, Moody's has been rating municipal bonds using the same criteria as corporate bonds, which is leading to many more communities with high bond ratings.
Given that Bristol isn't far off now, and has both a healthy reserve and an overfunded pension fund, it's likely to reach the top tier when the credit rating agencies take another look.
That's good news for taxpayers.
