Medford City Manager to retire in 2024

MEDFORD, Ore. – Medford will soon be looking for a new City Manager.

Brian Sjothun, who has held the role since 2016, but has worked for the city for almost 20 years, will be retiring at the end of the year according to the city.

Medford’s Mayor Randy Sparacino says it will be hard to replace someone as great as Sjothun.

“He’s [Sjothun] brought innovative leadership to the position of city manager,” Mayor Sparacino said, “he’s been forward-leading on a lot of innovative ideas that have made the city of Medford a better place to live”.

Sjothun’s career with Medford began in the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.

Prior to coming to Medford he worked with the Woodburn Recreation and Parks Department.

In all, he’s spent 36 years in public sector service.
