The Montgomery County Commissioners Court will be seeking $15.5 million from the Texas Legislature to fund an active-shooter training facility as well as memorializing new court interpreter pay at the next meeting Feb. 7.

According to resolution on the agenda, the Montgomery County Commissioners Court is seeking to acquire the former Keefer Crossing Middle School and recondition it to support a permanent active-shooter training facility that can be used by agencies across the state.

The facility has been rented by Montgomery County since Oct. 1 and operated jointly by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. According to the resolution, roughly 1,200 first responders have completed the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training at the facility, which is performed by certified instructors.

Montgomery County will assume the long-term cost of the facility, according to the resolution, and there will be no charge to first responder agencies who wish to use the facility in the future.

Also to be discussed at the meeting is the final memorialization of the new court interpreter pay structure for Montgomery County. During the Dec. 13 meeting, the court agreed to change the pay schedule from $65 an hour to $650 a day for the first two days before returning to an hourly rate.

The meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the Alan B. Sadler Building at 501 N. Thompson St., Conroe, and will be livestreamed online as well.
