It did hold a local job fair for potential employees, however, which drew hundreds of job-seekers.“We looked at Select Energy as the anchor to help support the growth of Commerce Park,” said Commissioner Jeff Ohler. “We looked for them to help support the sewer line expansion project. We had $800,000 on the line.”The company did not give a reason for its decision to drop plans in Carroll County.In October, the Tuscarawas County Port Authority leased about an acre at its Reeves Mill Business Park in Dover to Select Energy Services, but there has been no activity there yet.
