Rockland improves finance ratingsPosted: Updated:
Rockland County's finances are at an all-time high.
For the first time in a decade, officials say the county's bond ratings have moved into the "A" category.
County Executive Ed Day says an analyst group gave Rockland's bonds an "A-" rating with a stable outlook. He says this will help taxpayers if they have to borrow money.
Officials says the county has cut its deficit from $138 million to $6 million, and hope to have it wiped by the end of the year.
