Riviera Beach city leaders, Senator Rubio push to crackdown on owners of Stonybrook Apartments

Jul 7, 2016 | News

In May, Rubio called for the owner of the apartment complex to be investigated. 

Pardo said the city has been battling the property owners, Global Ministries Foundation for years. On Tuesday she toured the non-profit’s federally funded apartments with a staff member of Rubio’s office. 

“We witnessed holes in the walls, we witnessed roaches coming out of the air conditioning vents,” said Pardo.

Rubio’s office released this statement:

“Senator Rubio’s office has been actively looking into health and safety conditions at Global Ministries Foundation properties throughout the state over the past 8 months. The Senator has toured complexes in Jacksonville and in Orlando, and today his staff toured the Stonybrook apartment complex in Riviera Beach. The situation they witnessed was no different from other GMF-owned properties. Roaches were crawling across floors, mold was growing along walls, safety issues were clearly visible and residents even spoke of rat infestations. The scope of these housing problems continues to grow and is alarming. People shouldn’t have to live this way and Global Ministries can’t get away with stealing taxpayer dollars for its own profit. That’s why Senator Rubio has asked both the Department of Justice and the Treasury Department to open investigations into the slumlord organization.”

Rubio has toured two of GMF federally subsidized housing properties in Jacksonville and Orlando, calling the conditions there deplorable. 

“I commend Sen. Rubio for putting his foot down and saying we are not going to tolerate this,” said Pardo.
