Moody's Investors Service
states Collin County's (Aaa stable) credit profile is strong and exceeds medians for the rating category across a number of metrics. The county's tax base is large and affluent, and continues to grow at a robust pace. The county's credit profile also benefits from conservative fiscal management and very high reserves relative to revenues, as well as low debt and pension burdens. The county is primarily challenged by managing growth, though has done so over the past several years while maintaining its solid financial profile and low leverage.
