You won't find many receivers that are "good enough" to handle that spacing 
with both frequencies being used so close together.

If this is just an issue with it interfering with your personal scanning 
pleasure, that's just life; but IF those frequencies are both being used by 
the same agency, it was very poor planning on the part of whoever decided to 
use THOSE specific frequencies from among all the frequencies and separate 
licenses that the county holds.

Those frequencies are on two completely different licenses, which were 
almost certainly originally meant to be two different agencies.  It isn't 
unusual for a city or county government to decide that since they "own" all 
the licenses issued to their various agencies so they can play mix and match 
with the frequencies and sometimes the combinations that get chosen don't 
work very well together.
