Medford, Ore. — Medford’s Deputy City Manager Bill Hoke is out of a job. Medford City Manager Brian Sjothun confirms to NBC5 News that Deputy City Manager Bill Hoke is on administrative leave until they’re able to come to terms on a separation agreement.
Hoke previously served as City Manager Pro Tem for one year while the city searched for a new city manager. He appointed Allison Chan as City Manager Pro Tem until Sjothun was hired in August.

I want to inform all of you that there has been a change in the City Manager’s Office.
Effective today, Bill Hoke is no longer with the City.
All of us in the City Manager’s office are here to assist and do everything we can to make this transition as smooth as possible.
Please let us know how we can assist you.
