BRADENTON, Fla. – Jefferson County, Ala., officials concluded recent meetings in New York City over new bankruptcy concessions saying that additional negotiations will be necessary with major creditors of the county’s debt-laden sewer system.

“Even though progress has been made, more conversations are needed before the targeted level of creditor concessions is achieved,” said a rare joint statement Oct. 25 by commissioners David Carrington and Jimmie Stephens, who are heading up talks. “Due to the sensitive nature of the negotiations, we will have no further comment at this point in time.”
