BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. - WINK News has learned Lee County will look at possibly joining with Bonita Springs in providing ambulance service.
Bonita Springs Fire and Rescue workers came to a meeting of Lee Commissioners Monday wearing stickers advocating a take-over of emergency medical services.
Bonita believes it can respond more quickly to calls but Lee County would lose at least one million dollars a year if it gives up the service entirely.
Commissioners told their staff to come back with options to consolidate the two agencies and their services.
