Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to A2 from A1 the general obligation rating for the city of Wadena, Minn.'s rated debt.

The city has $3.8 million of general obligation debt outstanding, of which $2.1 million is rated by Moody's.

The city's general obligation debt is secured by an unlimited tax pledge.

The downgrade to A2 reflects the city's modestly-sized tax base with recent declines in value and below average income levels, adequate financial operations with limited liquidity while awaiting natural disaster reimbursements, and a manageable debt burden.
