Bentley supports bankruptcy over sewer debt

JEFFERSON COUNTY, ALA. (WBRC) - Jefferson County Commission President David Carrington and Commissioner Sandra Little Brown met with Governor Robert Bentley Monday, who said he supports filing for bankruptcy to deal with the county's sewer debt.

Several county commissioners are against a court-appointed receiver's possible recommendation to increase sewer bills by 25 percent. One commissioner has proposed a bill to stop any tax increases.
