Canaveral Port Authority Vice Chair Robyn Hattaway has put Port Authority attorney Harold Bistline on notice that she will be closely examining his invoices.
Hattaway — who also is an attorney — at Wednesday’s Port Authority meeting voted against approving Bistline’s monthly bill for professional services, after she questioned one item on the bill. That was Bistline’s $350 charge for attending a May 6 shipboard ceremony involving the debut at Port Canaveral of the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Harmony of the Seas.

“As an attorney, I’ve attended a lot of social events at the invitation of my clients, but never billed them for it. And I can’t look taxpayers in the eye and say that that’s an appropriate use of a public dollar.”
