Frequently Asked Questions

What is the County’s bond rating with Standard & Poor’s, Fitch Ratings and Moody’s Investor Service?

Cobb County has maintained its triple AAA rating for our General Obligation (G.O.) bonds since 1997. We are one of approximately 20 counties nationwide to achieve this status placing Cobb in the top 1% of counties nationwide.

Additionally, in 2001 the Cobb County Water System became the first county in the U.S. to earn the triple AAA rating for an unenhanced water and sewer system. These outstanding ratings assure us that if and when we go to the bond market, we will get the lowest competitive interest rate available, which translates to substantial interest cost savings over the life of the bonds.
