Fitch Ratings reaffirms City’s “AAA” bond ratings

Post Date:July 10, 2020
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the City of Lewisville’s “AAA” ratings on its water and sewer revenue bond debt. This AAA rating is the highest possible credit rating given by Fitch. This is a reaffirmation of the AAA rating the City first achieved in 2013 and has received every year since.

Unlike personal credit scores, a municipal credit rating is a measure of an issuer’s overall fiscal health. According to Fitch Ratings, key drivers leading to Lewisville’s AAA rating included:
  • The utility system maintains a strong financial position and has shown minimal impacts from the coronavirus outbreak
  • Favorable demographic trends and demonstrated rate flexibility – user rates are very affordable and provide a funding source for capital improvements.
  • Low annual operating costs with a low life cycle ratio for investment in capital – annual investment in capital is greater than utility system depreciation
  • Manageable debt levels
Later this Fall, the City of Lewisville plans to sell $12,955,000 in Waterworks and Sewer System Revenue Bonds to provide funds for constructing, acquiring, and installing improvements, additions, and extensions to the City’s waterworks and sewer system and costs associated with the issuance of the bonds.
