Navajo County receives AA Bond Rating from Standard & Poor


Holbrook, AZ – Navajo County is pleased to announce that Standard & Poor’s (S&P) awarded an AA Bond Rating for its 2021 Obligations and planned refinancing of existing bonds. The AA Bond

existing bonds is expected to save taxpayers between $644K to $996K over the next ten years.

“S&P’s AA Bond Rating is a tremendous accomplishment and a well-deserved recognition of the County’s disciplined financial management and planning,” said Navajo County Chairman Daryl
Seymore. “I think our residents should be proud and confident in the professionalism and prudent management by our Elected Officials and Staff.”

The AA Bond Rating reflects the work that has been accomplished over the past several years to
position the County going into the future. S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Andrew Bredeson
stated, "The stable outlook reflects our expectation that the county's general creditworthiness
will likely remain stable, supported by very strong reserves and manageable expenditure
