County officials released the study Friday after it came under scrutiny earlier in the week. County Commission Chairman Jennifer Roberts has asked the county attorney to look into allegations that county staff improperly influenced the study authors as they prepared their findings.
Fox Lawson & Associates, the firm that conducted the study, said it found no evidence that any government officials pressured it to change information in the report.
