DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Dutchess County is in good financial shape.

The county's 2016 audited financial report shows the county has a year-end surplus of $10 million in its general fund. The county scored zero percent on the comptroller's fiscal stress monitoring system, a perfect score.

The county maintains a fund balance of $59.9 million, allowing to secure an AA+ bond rating.

"We must remain on this successful fiscal path and continue our work to find new efficiencies, share services and deliver excellence to our citizens," County Executive Marc Molinaro said. "I am grateful to the Legislature, county elected officials and our departments for working together for the success of our county.”
