On February 3rd, Moody's issued the Aaa stable rating with a stable outlook, citing in their credit opinion, "the village benefits from strong fiscal management, ample reserves and liquidity, and a manageable debt though its pension and OPEB liabilities are elevated. Strong financial management continues to contribute to annual surplus operations."
