Tulsa County plans to cancel its contract with Manhattan Construction for the new juvenile justice center and will enter into an amended, less expensive agreement with Selser Schaefer Architects, the firm designing the center, County Commissioner Ron Peters told News On 6's partner, The Frontier on Thursday.
