NAPLES, Fla. -- Collier County commissioners have shot down a proposal from the City of Naples that would have allowed the city to start charging residents for beach parking.

Instead, both sides will spend the next three months coming up with a new contract.  The current one ends in September 2018.

For more than eight years, the county has paid Naples $1 million a year so residents could get a beach sticker and park for free.

But both sides have agreed that $1 million a year isn't enough money.
