3 Tom Green County Constables Win Salary Grievance and Get Significant Raise


SAN ANGELO, TX – Three of the four Tom Green County Constables were successful in the grievance of their proposed FY2022 salary and will receive a 10% raise.  

Tom Green County Commissioners Tuesday voted unanimously to approve the recommendation from the Salary Grievance Committee which would raise the Constables base salary from about $50,000 to $62,500 annually.  

The Commissioner's Court had approved a proposed salary increase of $3,000 in the FY2020 budget and informed the Constables in writing as required by state law.  Texas law requires County Elected officials to be notified in writing what their proposed salaries for the next fiscal year will be.  Elected officials then have the opportunity to contest the proposed salary through the salary grievance committee process.  

Tom Green County Constables Randy Harris, Pct. 4; Mike Magee, Pct. 1; and Mark Whitaker Pct. 3 contested their proposed salaries initiating the salary grievance process.  Pct. 2 Constable Deen Dickson didn't contest his proposed salary and will not receive the raise.  

The nine member Salary Grievance Committee was made up of six county elected officials and three citizens who were drawn from the Grand Jury pool.  The County Elected Officials included the Sheriff, County Attorney, County Treasurer, Tax Assessor, County Judge, County Clerk and District Clerk.  There were seven members of the Salary Grievance Committee present last week during the hearing.  

The Constables had requested a salary of $69,917 during the budget process.
