Jefferson County, Ala. Commission President Bettye Fine Collins said in a statement Monday that “it would appear there is little or no chance for a special session on any plan requiring a vote on a constitutional amendment.”
Her statement came Monday afternoon as the commission continued try to address the financial problems facing its sewer system. The current restructuring plan would need approval by constituents and Gov. Bob Riley. Riley still has not agreed to call a special session of the Legislature, which would be required to enable the county to complete certain aspects of the current restructuring proposal..
