Supervisor's E-Newsletter
September 2016


It has been an exciting end of September for the Town of Mamaroneck with two great achievements in financial rating and environmental recognition.


Firstly, the Town of Mamaroneck achieved a Aaa credit rating from Moody’s Investor Services this month. This is the highest rating possible. Moody’s reported that “the upgrade to Aaa reflects strong cash and reserve levels, a sizeable and affluent tax base, a manageable debt burden and strong management." This is a prestigious rating as only 10% to 15% of all municipalities in the country have a Aaa rating. The Town Board's financial policies contributed to the improved rating. Thank you, also, to the Town’s strong financial staff. https://www.moodys.com/research/Moodys-Upgrades-Mamaronecks-NY-GO-rating-to-Aaa-Outlook-stable--PR_903603335

Secondly, the Town earned Certification as a Climate Smart Community from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The Town is only the ninth community in the State to earn such an honor. DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said, “We all have a role to play in reducing energy use and the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. I applaud Mamaroneck’s commitment to reducing energy use in government operations. The Town of Mamaroneck has one of the most comprehensive climate programs in New York State and achieved certification points under every one of the 10 Climate Smart Communities pledge elements. The Town’s decreased energy use not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions, it saves taxpayers money." In the photo above, NYS DEC Acting Regional Director, Kelly Turturro, presented the Climate Smart Communities Certification award. http://www.townofmamaroneckny.org/DocumentCenter/View/690
