Tolland to Issue Refinancing Bonds

The Town of Tolland will be issuing refinancing bonds which will save the Town approximately $500,000 over the remaining life of the bonds and in addition BANS (short term notes) to help finance approved capital projects.  As part of the issuance process, Town Officials today had a financial rating review with Standard and Poors.  Officials involved included Town Manager Steven Werbner, Finance Director Lisa Hancock, Assistant Finance Director Agata Herasimowicz and the Towns Financial Advisor Barry Bernabe. Standard and Poors last year raised the Towns Financial rating to the Triple A category, the highest rating possible. Following the rating review session Mr Bernabe, Managing Director of Phoenix Advisors, stated the following: “You all did an excellent job on the S&P rating call.  I have been doing this for over 20 years and I think the Town of Tolland has one of the strongest management teams I have seen.  Very comprehensive, disciplined and professional presentation. I use a lot of your rating information to show other communities how to do it right!” The Town Council is pleased to hear such high praise of our Town officials and thanks them for the excellent work they do for the community on a continuing basis.
