BRADENTON, Fla. — Jefferson County, Ala., commissioners meet Friday with bankruptcy still on the table. Once again, they will consider whether to approve a deal with creditors to restructure $3.14 billion of defaulted sewer debt, or to file for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, or continue with negotiations as they did in August.

Few details have been made public about settlement talks since the commission rejected a proposal by creditors a month ago, and agreed to take another 30 days in an attempt to hammer out an acceptable agreement.
