The Hamilton County government once again secured the highest marks from major credit rating agencies.

The county has a AAA bond rating according to Standard & Poors, Fitch and Moody's rating agencies.

Having a strong bond rating saves the county millions on debt service and interest rates, according to Mayor Jim Coppinger.

Coppinger said Wednesday the rating is the direct result of hard work at the county's finance department.
