Attention All Judges in Broward County Courthouse: Bill Scherer is Now Your Landlord!

You gotta love Broward — how comical is this:

[C]ommissioners will vote Tuesday to lease about 200 parking spaces from a prominent Fort Lauderdale attorney, Bill Scherer, for courthouse parking. The spaces are in the county’s own garage, where the jurors park. But the county in 1992 leased the spaces to Scherer and a group of developers, for $107,500 a year. The county will pay more than twice that, $277,536 a year, to use them now.

Wait a minute — so property of the county, now leased by Bill, will be leased back to the county at more than double what Bill pays for them?

No wonder Bill is so successful.
