The "ORIGINAL" Jacobs Study
Click the link below to view the 'ORIGINAL" Jacobs study dated January 2012. This is the study that the Town of Cumberland paid for in 2011. This report has never been made public and is what the consultant originally supplied then Mayor McKee. Upon reading the results, Mayor McKee sent the consultant back to the drawing board to present a much different report that was more in line with Mayor McKee's political agenda and, was published in October 2012. Thank you to the concerned and former political insider that supplied us with this report.
