Jefferson County asks for time on closing decisions | News
JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC)- Jefferson County is asking for more time to decide if it will continue to operate at the Bessemer Courthouse and use some sheriff's department substations.
In a bankruptcy court filing made Friday, the county is asking a federal bankruptcy judge to give them an extension to decide which leases to get out of.
The county has some flexibility to get out of contracts because of its chapter 9 bankruptcy.
The filing asks for an extension through September 27th.
