Select Energy Services Gets Tax Break in New Philadelphia

After shocking Carrollton officials by withdrawing from the Carroll County Commerce Park project, Select Energy Services set its sights on Tuscarawas County.

New Philadelphia officials voted this week to pave the way for Select to set up a service facility in the west end of the city.

From the Times Reporter:
Following a suspension of council’s rules for three readings, members voted 6-0 to approve an emergency ordinance to grant Select Energy Services, a Texas-based company that provides well-site services for the oil and gas industry, a 50 percent income-tax break for the next three years, beginning Jan. 1.
Councilman John Zucal, Salary Committee chairman, made the motion to suspend the rules for three readings, and the motion passed unanimously, clearing the way for passage. His committee met prior to council’s last regular meeting and sponsored the legislation, which was given a first reading Monday night.
The only public discussion of the issue prior to its passage was a request for approval by Mayor Michael Taylor, read in his absence by Service Director Jim Zucal, that stated: “Select Energy’s new jobs will be a great benefit for the city and area as a whole.”
Taylor previously had informed council members that SES officials are looking at a site on the city’0s west end for its servicing location, and had estimated they will create in excess of 100 jobs working out of the location.
Company officials had told the committee that New Philadelphia is their preferred site location because of the high visibility and the easy access from Interstate 77, because they are primarily in the water (transport) industry, Zucal had said.
