LaSalle County prepares for credit rating evaluation

LaSalle County prepares for credit rating evaluation

Moody’s will evaluate LaSalle County government next week. The county’s financial director, Joyce Tucker, went over policies with the County Board earlier this week. She said the board can get better interest rates if it shows it has policies for tracking grant money, maintaining a financial reserve, and taking other responsible money management measures.

County Board members are increasingly worrying about the county’s finances with the amount in the general fund from year to year going down.
