Nelson Charlebois, Reeve of Cumberland Township, appeared separately to support the township’s submission to the Jones Commission. Top of mind was the disproportionately low share of road funds the township received from Prescott and Russell County.
|County Road and Township||Vehicles per day||Underlined Twp. Contribution to County Roads||Underlined Twp. Road Program Apportionment|
|No. 1 CUMBERLAND||750-900||$43,380.00||$72,000.00|
|No. 15 ALFRED-S. PLANTAGENET||150||$17,505.00||$28,000.00|
|No. 5 CAMBRIDGE-RUSSELL BOUNDARY||280-360||$15,683.00||$50,000.00|
Reproduced above, this table (rejected by the County) represents what Charlebois considered to be a fair deal.
