Cherokee awards jail commissary contract

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners has awarded a professional services contract to Legacy Commissary Services to run an on-site commissary at the Adult Detention Center in Canton.

The commissary will produce estimated annual sales of $733,054, based on the previous year’s volume, and yield about $312,724 in annual commissions to the Detention Center, Dale Jordan, the county’s director of procurement and risk management, said in an agenda request to commissioners. Legacy scored the highest of six bidders for the contract.

“This is a revenue contract for the ADC where the estimated annual proceeds of $312,724 will be used to benefit the inmates,” Jordan said. “Additionally, Legacy is offering a $15,000 annual technology grant to the ADC.”

The contract term is for one year with two one-year automatic renewals.
