Mecklenburg County Keeps AAA Bond Rating

I am pleased to inform you that Mecklenburg County has retained its AAA bond rating according to a report released by Fitch Ratings last week.
This is the highest possible rating any local government can receive. It affirms Mecklenburg County’s sound financial and budget management, conservative debt repayment structure, stable local economy, and increasing general fund reserves. This rating confirms market confidence in Mecklenburg County’s economic condition and its fiscal management.
 We expect to receive ratings information from Moody’s and S&P by early February. For more information, contact Finance Director Wanda Reeves at 980-314-2979 or Wanda.Reeves@MecklenburgCountyNC.gov​

Provided Services Organization Receives International Accreditation 
I would like to congratulate the Provided Services Organization’s Substance Abuse Services program on its recent accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of rehabilitation Facilities International (CARF).
This "seal of approval" was awarded for a three-year period with no recommendations for the following services:
 
  • Day Treatment: Alcohol and other Drugs/Addictions (Adults) 
  • Day Treatment: Alcohol and other Drugs/Addictions (Criminal Justice) 
  • Detoxification: Alcohol and other Drugs/Addictions (Adults) 
  • Residential Treatment: Integrated (Adults) 

This represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization's substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable. Receiving no recommendations places the Substance Abuse Services program in the top four percent of programs surveyed this year.

Newtown Memorial Playground to be Dedicated This Week
I would like to invite you to join me for the dedication ceremony of the Newtown Memorial Playground on Dec. 11. The ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m.

The playground, which honors the memory of the students and staff lost in the Sandy Hook school tragedy in 2012, was constructed in one week by hundreds of volunteers. Its design was inspired by students at Pinewood Elementary School in south Charlotte.

View photos of the playground.

For more information on the playground, contact Jim Garges at 980-314-1012 or James.Garges@MecklenburgCountyNC.gov ​
