Select Energy Services has dropped plans to build an oil-and-gas facility and create 200 jobs in Carroll County.
That has Carroll County commissioners unhappy after the county arranged $700,000 in grants to help the project, the New Philadelphia Times-Recporter said on Friday.
The Texas-based water-haulinjg company gave no reason for the abrupt switch.
Select Energy last January announced plans for the new facility off state Route 9 in Carrolton but had never purchased the 30 acres in an industrial park. It did hold a job fair that attracted hundreds of potential workers.
The county worked to get state grants of $700,000 to upgrade a sewer plant for the project..
Carroll County officials were surprised to learn that Select Energy has leased a one-acre site in Dover in Tuscarawas Count for a water-retrieval facilityy. That site adjoins the Tuscarawas River.
