Comptroller and County Executive Announce Ratings Upgrade

Wall Street rating agency Fitch Ratings (“Fitch”) today upgraded Erie County’s (“County”) credit rating from “A” to “A+”


Erie County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw signed the resolution for refunding the 2005 bonds, which will save taxpayers roughly $2.5 million. Lower interest rates and an improved credit rating make the refunding a worthy endeavor.


Erie County Comptroller Stefan I. Mychajliw is calling on County Executive Poloncarz to allow the Erie County Fiscal Stability Authority (ECFSA) to borrow on behalf of the County. For 2015 Capital Projects, borrowing through the ECFSA would save $927,025.00. Refunding the 2005 bonds through the ECFSA would earn the County an extra $698,164.14 in savings.
