UPDATE: Brian Sjothun says Madding will focus on development services and specialty projects like urban renewal.
Madding will begin her new role with the city in May.
Medford, Ore. — The city of Medford has a new Deputy City Manager and it’s a familiar face.
The city will soon announce Jackson County Development Services Director Kelly Madding will step into the role this spring.
Madding has been instrumental the last few years in helping shape the county’s recreational and medical marijuana regulations.
Medford parted ways with longtime Deputy City Manager Bill Hoke late last year. At that time City Manager Brian Sjothun told NBC5 News that he hoped the next person to step into the role would focus heavily on bringing new businesses to Medford.
