In 2019, East Windsor earned a significant municipal bond rating upgrade from AA to AA+ by S&P Global Ratings underscoring the Township's sustained positive operating performance and effective fiscal management. At the same time, the Township has continued to provide high-quality services through its responsive public works department, outstanding police department, and excellent recreation programs and senior services.
