Former Opa-locka manager  David Chiverton, pleaded guilty in federal court on Monday to using his office to pocket thousands in cash bribes from local business owners in one of the largest corruption cases in South Florida.

 The former administrator is among a host of Opa-locka government leaders who were caught shaking down businesses in exchange for permits and water connections during an FBI sting, which used informants who videotaped the illegal payoffs in parking lots, a restaurant and a bathroom in City Hall.

 A state financial board overseeing the city’s operations declared that Opa-locka is on the edge of bankruptcy and may not have enough money to pay its workers through the end of the year.

 An indictment is expected to be returned by a grand jury in Miami that will likely name other known figures, including City Commissioner Luis Santiago.
