SAN FRANCISCO--19 Oct--S&P Global Ratings

SAN FRANCISCO (S&P Global Ratings) Oct. 18, 2016--S&P Global Ratings raised its long-term rating to 'AA+' from 'AA' on the Mill Valley Facilities Financing Corp., Calif.'s certificates of participation (COPs), issued on behalf of the city of Mill Valley. The outlook is stable.

"The raised rating reflects our view of the city's very strong historical financial performance," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Chloe Weil. "We believe the city's financial performance is sustainable, given the city council's recent adoption of a five-year rate plan, which incorporates rising wastewater treatment costs and assessments paid to the Sewerage Agency of Southern Marin, following the completion of a rate study in August 2016," Ms. Weil added.

The COPs are backed by installment payments from the city to the corporation. The installment payments are secured by sewer system net revenue.

Mill Valley, with a population of about 14,000, is located in Marin County, about 11 miles north of San Francisco. Residents have access to diverse employment opportunities throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
