WASHINGTON COUNTY - A pilot program that will bus Washington County residents to jobs in the Hunters Green Business Center will serve two purposes, the general manager of the Petsmart Distribution Center said.
It will help people find work, and potentially create a larger hiring pool for Petsmart, one of the companies that might participate in the program, Rick Domzalski said.
"I'm interested (in the program) because it's going to allow potential associates to get transportation to the Hopewell Valley industrial area," Domzalski said. "The unemployment rate is so low that it's not always easy to find the right associates."
The state Governor's Office for Children authorized the county to use $166,000 in state funding to set up a County Commuter bus route to transport people to jobs in the business park off Hopewell Road.
