EAST PROVIDENCE â In recognition of the cityâs improving financial performance, Standard & Poorâs Ratings Services Tuesday raised East Providenceâs general obligation bond rating five notches to âAâ from âBB+â.
âThe higher rating is based on our recently released local general obligation criteria, as well as the cityâs improving financial performance and liquidity position and lower long-term pension liabilities,â said Standard & Poorâs credit analyst Victor Medeiros.
PAWTUCKET â Thanks to some tireless lobbying on the part of city officials and local legislators, Pawtucket won approval to have a second neighborhood designated as a state-designated âEnterprise Zoneâ offering tax incentives to new or expanding businesses.
