CELINA (August 13, 2018) Moody’s Investors Service assigns a bond rating of Aa3 to the City of Celina, reflecting a rapidly growing tax base. Moody's has also upgraded to Aa3 from A1 the City of Celina's, TX issuer rating and rating on outstanding general obligation limited tax (GOLT) debt. The upgrade will provide significant savings to Celina taxpayers by qualifying the city for lower interest rates.
