Sedgwick County has received the highest marks possible from three bond ratings groups.

Standard & Poor's said its AAA rating for the county reflected historically strong general fund reserves, "conservative and sophisticated" financial management policies and rapid paydown of debt.

Moody's Investors Service and FitchRatings also gave the county AAA ratings and said its financial outlook was stable.
