City Finances

Mobile’s bond rating is the best in our history at a time when we have been experiencing the worst economy in our history. The experts that examine municipal finances all over this nation, Standard & Poor’s said Mobile is a well financially managed city.

“Listen to what the experts say about Mobile – not the naysayers. Despite all the political drama, four years’ great recession and declining revenue, City of Mobile finances are sound. And, it did not happen all by itself. Against all odds, we had to make it happen. We balanced our budget, kept delivering services to citizens, created thousands of new jobs, kept crime down, opened new police and fire stations, and developed two parks.” – Sam Jones
