Jacobs was with the town for five years. We do not know detailed reasons for her resignation. What we do know is that it comes after she attempted on Wednesday to get the council to approve, without discussion, a scheme to launder certain federal ARPA funds for use in a non approved manner. You can read more about that Monday.
That same night, council held an Executive Session annual review of Jacobs’ performance. That review happened after her advocacy of the sham transaction.
Her resignation Friday followed that council performance review.
