While Jefferson County, Ala., works to extend forbearance agreements that expire Friday, the county’s trustee has said that defaults have occurred on the county’s sewer debt.

County Commission President Bettye Fine Collins Monday said that negotiations are under way that would allow the county to pay $10 million toward its accelerated repayments on non-sewer general obligation warrants and $10 million toward the troubled sewer debt in return for forbearance extensions. The commission is expected to consider extension agreements later this week.
