Town hires new CBO: Hartholt calls Erin ‘perfect fit’

Andrew Hartholt is looking forward to the “new challenges” with his new position as the town’s chief building official.

He was named CBO last week. He spent five years as a building inspector with Guelph-Era­mosa Township. Before that, he worked with an environmental consulting firm.

He now calls Fergus home.

He said Erin was a perfect fit because he is familiar with the area and it presents the unique situation of having the entire town on septic systems.
