Diana Wasserman-Rubin's Husband Hit With Federal Tax Charges
A lot of people didn't think it was fair that while his wife was hit with felony corruption charges for voting on a grant that benefited him, Richard Rubin seemingly got off scot-free after he and other officials gamed the Town of Southwest Ranches for millions of dollars.
In a move to save 16.87 acres of wetlands threatened by development in eastern Davie, council members are seeking state and local grants in hopes of buying the property.By a 4-1 vote on Wednesday, they approved a contract with consultant Richard Rubin of Richard Rubin Inc., authorizing him to prepare and submit a grant application to the Florida Community Trust Fund for more than $1 million.Rubin, an architect and municipal grant writer, said the town could seek additional financing from Broward County's parks bond fund, which is earmarked for the acquisition of open space. He said the owner is asking for $3.4 million for the property.
