    Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger has appointed Gene Richards as the permanent director of aviation at the Burlington International Airport.

    Richards, the former chairman of the Airport Commission, has been serving as interim director of the airport since July of 2012.

    Weinberger said he has exceeded his expectations as interim director, from reorganizing the airport staff to the airport refinancing bonds to creating a more welcoming atmosphere through new restaurants and concessionaires.

    Richards said his passion for the airport has grown in the last 10 months that he has served as director and that he and the staff are ready to keep moving forward.
