Awarding a bid for an architect to design expansion of the Tulsa jail is taking longer than anticipated. The contract has been delayed about three times while a firm is decided upon by a committee studying bids. Sheriff Stanley Glanz says there were problems when a contract was awarded first time around when the lockup was originally built, and he wants to be sure the right firm is chosen this time.

He says a contract should be awarded next Monday, still in time to begin construction late this summer or in early fall.
