Andrew Ungerson Named Interim Building Inspector Ahead of Clancy's Upcoming Retirement

By: Rich Hosford


The Burlington Building Department will have a new leader, at least for a while.

On Monday evening Town Administrator John Petrin told the Board of Selectmen he is appointing Senior Building Inspector Andrew Ungerson to be interim Building Inspector starting on February 8.


The appointment comes as current Building Inspector John Clancy is set to retire after 30 years of service to the town.


“We will have a vacancy for the Building Inspector and in that department we need someone in the head position,” Petrin said of the busy Building Department that oversees building permits, inspections and other functions for commercial and residential projects.


Petrin said Ungerson, who has also been with the department for roughly 30 years, would be the perfect fit to take the position as the town searches for a long-term replacement for Clancy.


“Andy has been a great employee in the department for many years,” Petrin said. “He is very knowledgeable in the area and will have no problem stepping into the position.”


The Board of Selectmen voted to waive the standard 15-day waiting period.


“It’s kind of a no-brainer,” Board Chair Chris Hartling said of the decision.
