BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) - Officials say they're getting close to
opening a two-city police and firefighter training facility in the
Eldorado Valley area of Boulder City.
The Boulder City Council approved a deal late Tuesday to contribute 720 acres of land to the project.
Henderson council members are due April 14 to consider contributing an initial $1 million and two modular buildings.
Officials say construction could begin by June on the $6 million joint public safety training complex off U.S. 95.
Plans call for five firing ranges, two emergency vehicle training tracks, a rappelling tower, a burn tower, mock jail facilities, SWAT and K-9 obstacles courses and classrooms.
The $1.6 million first phase would expand roads, water and electricity lines and install the modular buildings.
