Bankruptcy exit plan to be filed by Jefferson County in June

A recent report stated that Jefferson County plans to file its plan for addressing its debts and how it will exit bankruptcy on June 1.

County officials said on March 12 that they hope to present a plan that receives the approval of sewer creditors, but were also considering using “cram-down” power, in which a repayment plan can be approved by the court against the will of dissenting creditors. But Chief U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Thomas Bennett, who is overseeing the case, must confirm the adjustment plan.

At least two consenting impaired classes of creditors needed for the “cram-down” are believed to have been secured by the county.

Mounting debt is something which even government entities can face.
