Tamarac Commission Tries To Hide Controversial Appointment

Ilene Lieberman

Touched by a corruption scandal while in office, former County Commissioner Ilene Lieberman’s appointment to a Tamarac city board was apparently controversial.

So controversial that Tamarac City Commissioners tried to hide it.

Maybe so controversial because Lieberman was deeply enmeshed a decade ago in a dirty deal to pave over two golf courses and built 700 homes. In Tamarac.

Tamarac’s mayor, several commissioners, a County Commissioner and a School Board member ended up being charged with wrong doing surrounding the project.

Lieberman was never charged.

But Lieberman’s fingerprints were all over the Tamarac development.

So when Lieberman surfaced as a recent committee appointment to the city’s Planning and Zoning Board, her name was kept on the down low. Lieberman’s appointment never appeared on the agenda.

The appointment of Lieberman was hidden so well that Commissioner Marlon Bolton complained that he couldn’t find it in his April 24th agenda packet.
