NEWSFLASH….

From January 1, 2008, through December 8, 2009, Bistline’s law firm, was paid $626,996.09 by the Brevard County School board, plus $231,729.68 by the Port (for 2008 only), all in the midst of an incredible economic recession.

• This total sum of $858,725.77 DOES NOT INCLUDE the fees paid by the port to Bistline for 2009.
The Port also spent $182,000 in 2009 for additional legal fees to other legal firms (not Bistline’s firm).
• The Schoolboard paid an additional $90,180.55 for legal fees to other legal firms (not Bistline’s firm) for a grand total in legal fees for the schoolboard for 2008 of $717,176,64.
In the opinion of BrevardWatchdogs.com, our citizens deserve an audit conducted by the Canaveral Port Authority and schoolboard, to ensure that these legal fees charged are fair, considering the current economic recession and the budget gaps throughout Brevard County.
