COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Two Collier County fire districts are moving forward with plans to merge administrative services. The hope is that it will save taxpayer dollars.

East Naples and Golden Gate commissioners feel merging the districts' staffs together will allow both districts to run more efficiently and at a lower cost to each.

It will be up to voters to approve a full consolidation in a referendum.
