GATESVILLE — Pamela Williams will become Coryell County’s first human resources director, and Guy Beveridge will be the new constable in Precinct 1 following action by the county commissioners court Monday.

A native of Copperas Cove, Williams, 31, has been an investigator for Child Protective Services for the past two years. She was selected to fill the newly created HR position by a unanimous vote of the commissioners.

“I can’t tell you what a Christmas blessing this is, to work in the county where I was born and raised, in a job I am passionate about,” Williams said,

The commissioners added $81,000 to the fiscal year 2014 budget to create a human resources department, including $48,000 salary for a director plus benefits and office space. Williams will start work in January.

Beveridge was appointed to the constable position left vacant by the January death of Constable Roger Faught.

In February, Beveridge was appointed as a reserve deputy by Precinct 2 Constable Shawn Camp to help with the workload in Precinct 1 until a replacement for Faught could be named.

A special election in November 2014 will decide who completes Faught’s term, which expires in 2016.

Beveridge filed as a candidate for the position in the Republican primary in March. He is the only candidate of either party to seek the office.

He was named to the position Monday on a 3-1 vote with commissioners Don Jones, Daren Moore and Justin Latham approving the appointment and Commissioner Jack Wall opposing it.

“I don’t feel comfortable doing this,” Wall said. “Until (the constable) has been selected by the voters, I don’t feel comfortable.”

Jones argued that Beveridge is handling the constable caseload but is being compensated as a reserve deputy.

“If he is doing the job of a constable, he should get constable’s pay,” Jones said.

Beveridge will be formally sworn in to office by Justice of the Peace John Guinn.
