Mayor Ron Littlefield confirmed Thursday that his spokesman for almost seven years will serve double duty as deputy personnel director.

Littlefield said Richard Beeland will continue to serve as communications director.

The mayor said the appointment came as his ranks are growing thin during the final days of his administration.

"We have some gaps to fill," he said.

He would not comment on whether any other administration staffers would fill other vacant city department positions.

Beeland said Thursday that the appointment was made by new city Personnel Director Susan Debose.

He said he would continue to serve in the position unless a new personnel director is appointed by the next administration and is told his services are no longer needed.
