The end of bankruptcy could be in sight for Jefferson County.
Tuesday, county commissioners commissioners reached a deal to settle the county's debt.
The deal includes a sewer rate increase of 7.14 percent each year, followed by an increase of 3.9% the fourth year.
The commission approved the deal by a 4-1 vote. Commissioner George Bowman was the lone vote against the plan.
The deal must still be approved by a judge and the county's creditors.
