NEW YORK – The following is a statement from Fabien Levy, press secretary to New York City Mayor Eric Adams, on the resignation of New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) Commissioner Eric Ulrich:

“This morning, Eric Ulrich tendered his resignation as DOB commissioner in an effort to, in his words, avoid ‘unnecessary distraction for the Adams administration.’ We have accepted his resignation, appreciate him taking this step, and wish him well. We have no further knowledge of any investigation and, out of respect for his and his family’s privacy, have nothing further to add.”

“DOB First Deputy Commissioner Kazimir Vilenchik, P.E. will serve as acting commissioner. We have full confidence in the team at DOB, and the agency remains fully operational. No city services will be impacted.”
