Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy has appointed interim directors for the human resources and emergency management departments.
Joe Carillo, who has been labor relations manager in human resources for 22 years, assumes the duties of Betsy Sawyers, who retired at the end of December as human resources director.
Jody Woodcock, the deputy director of emergency management and a 22-year county employee, takes over for Steve Bailey. He will retire Jan. 11 as director of emergency management.
Carillo and Woodcock, whose appointments were announced Friday, will work as interim directors while McCarthy carries out a search for permanent appointments.
