The provision banning kitchen use angered Commissioner J.D. Johnson, who called it "ridiculous" and hesitated to continue his support in light of Williams' decision.
"I want a better reason for not letting them use the kitchen than just, `The sheriff doesn't want them using it,' " Johnson said. "If there is no better reason, then I'm going to insist that it [use of the kitchen] be included in the contract."
Johnson's support is crucial to the passage of the contract, which has divided the five- member court.
When CSC won the contract in August, the vote was 3-2. Commissioners Johnson and Glen Whitley voted for it, along with County Judge Tom Vandergriff.
Commissioners Dionne Bagsby and Marti VanRavenswaay voted against it and are likely to do the same when it comes time to approve the contract, an action that is scheduled for Tuesday but may face more delays.
Vandergriff said he's optimistic that comissioners will be able to find a solution to the dispute over the kitchen issue.
But even if he's right, there's another wild card. Whitley expressed reservations yesterday about voting on the contract without Anderson's input.
Before the November election, Anderson had unsuccessfully requested that the issue be put off until after the new sheriff took office.
Whitley directed county staff members Wednesday to give a copy to Anderson before next week's vote. He said he had not talked to Anderson about it.
Whitley hopes that Anderson will have formed some opinion on it by next week.
"That's why I asked that they send something to him," Whitley said. "If Dee Anderson has problems with it, I'm not going to support it."
Anderson said he doesn't know "enough about it to form an opinion on it."
"I'd like to look at it and evaluate it and our needs for all of the facilities and let some professional people that I trust look at it from top to bottom," he said. "But if the commissioners want to get moving on it, they can. I understand why they would want to."
