Anyone who can’t make it to Montgomery next week for a hearing on the location of the new, consolidated high school will be able to watch a live stream at the Chambers County Courthouse.

The hearing will be held at the Montgomery courthouse, located at 15 Lee Street in Montgomery on Jan. 17, 18, and 19 starting at 8 a.m. CT.
