Manhattan city manager Ron Fehr announced the resignation Wednesday afternoon, saying Workman has done a terrific job in bringing the Flint HIlls Discovery Center project through a very successful construction process, as well as assembling and leading an incredible team.
Workman will stay at the Manhattan facility through mid-January and will assist with the national search for his replacement.
