The Medford City Council voted Thursday to create the job of emergency manager. The position will cost the city $145,000 a year in salary and benefits plus another $38,000 a year for materials and services and a one-time expense for $31,000. The Mail Tribune reports the manager would help prepare for earthquakes or other disasters and direct the Citizen Emergency Response Team that the council authorized last year. Only Council Chris Corcoran voted against the new position, saying the cost is not sustainable.
