Jefferson County delays bankruptcy filing

Yesterday, Jefferson County officials delayed their potential chapter 9 bankruptcy filing for the second time in two weeks.  Authorities now say they will have an agreement on entering into bankruptcy protection ready by next Friday, August 12.

Governor Bentley has been working with county officials to decide how to resolve Jefferson’s $3.14 billion in debt.  One of the major issues being discussed is the county’s sewer rates.  Over the past 10 years, Jefferson’s sewer rates have increased by 329 percent.

The county’s financial problems began several years ago when a federal court ordered it to rebuild their failed sewer system.  Bonds were issued to the county to finance the project.  These costs were inflated and put the county in $3.2 billion in debt.
