ABSTRACT
The article reports that Standard & Poor's Corp. has said that it has raised its rating on the Borough of Madison, New Jersey's outstanding general obligation bonds to AAA from AA-plus based on the borough's continued strong financial performance and position with ongoing revenue-generating flexibility, coupled with sound fiscal policies and conservative management practices. The outlook is stable based on the expectation that financial management will remain strong, bolstered by pay-as- you-go funding of capital improvements and a strong local economy.
