From the Burbank Leader:

Former Burbank City Manager Robert “Bud” Ovrom, deputy mayor for economic development in Los Angeles, will take the helm at the Department of Building and Safety, officials said Tuesday.

The appointment is part of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s reshuffling of top cabinet advisors and must be confirmed by the Los Angeles City Council.

Ovrom replaces Andrew Adelman, a former Crescenta Valley Town councilman who stepped down as general manager in September amid allegations that he raped a woman at his apartment. Prosecutors declined to seek charges after viewing a surveillance video and interviewing witnesses.
