County to give downtown workers the time of day

It's time to fix the clock on top of the Erie County Courthouse, county administrator Mike Bixler says.

After Bixler explained Thursday the county was going to repair the clock so that it will work correctly, county commissioner Nancy McKeen asked, "On all four sides?"

"You can walk around, it's a different time on every side," McKeen said.

That may be an exaggeration -- the clock appeared to have the correct time on three of four sides Thursday -- but the variant times have been a frequent source of embarrassment to the county.

"It's an ongoing maintenance issue. It's hard to get parts," Bixler said.

The county is spending $13,324  to hire the Verdin Company of Cincinnati to renovate the clock to make it work correctly, Bixler said. Work will be carried out in 60 to 90 days.
