BRADENTON, Fla. — Jefferson County, Ala., late Friday released its 2009 audit, with authors reiterating as they did earlier this year that the County Commission’s ability to continue as a going concern is in substantial doubt without restructuring the local government’s troubled debt.

The county is in default on $3.14 billion of variable- and auction-rate sewer warrants, $1.1 billion of limited obligation school warrants, and $105 million of general obligation warrants, according to the audit by Birmingham-based Warren, Averett, Kimbrough & Marino LLC.
