The ratings will apply to the town's general obligation bonds, including a recent $9 million debt issue to pay for capital projects and the town's purchase of the Planter's Row Golf Course in March.
Moody's cited the town's "strong financial policies," importance as a tourism center, large tax base and wealthy population in its rating.
