City of Mauldin Upgraded to Aa2 Credit Rating
MAULDIN, SC – The City of Mauldin has improved its credit rating to ‘Aa2’ according to Moody’s Investor Services.

City Administrator Trey Eubanks stated, “I am so thrilled that Mauldin has been upgraded to a Moody’s Aa2 credit rating. The most important thing we do as a city is serve as good stewards of our taxpayer’s dollars, and this report indicates our continued strength in this effort. This is truly the result of team effort and I want to say thank you to everyone for their hard work and dedication, it has certainly paid off!”
