Lake City, MN. The retirement of long time Lake City marina Harbormaster Mark Lutjen left a void that has been filled. The Marina has installed Jeff Brand as Lutjen’s successor. Brand, who was raised in Lake City and still lives there today, is no stranger to the marina or it’s customers. He worked at the gas dock there in his youth during summer breaks from high school and subsequently, college. He is a 1997 graduate of Bemidji State with a degree in Business Administration and has been the Operations Manager at the Marina since 1999. He has family and roots in the community, and understands what makes a great marina tick. The Lake City marina is a beautiful facility overlooking Lake Pepin. The marina’s proximity to downtown Lake City has made it a hub for boaters of all types for decades.
