(Aitkin, MN) — Nearly a quarter of the year into being Mayor of Aitkin, Megan Workman continues to get the lay of the land while looking at the future of the Mississippi Riverboat Town.

We recently spoke with Mayor Workman about the projects that are currently being worked on that began with her predecessor, Gary Tibbitts.
