It’s about time: Oconomowoc clock to turn again

The clock tower in Oconomowoc is finally scheduled for repairs.

Time has stood still in many ways in the little city west of Milwaukee, including the four-sided clock tower at City Hall.

All four hands at the landmark clock tower stopped working in December 2010. Stuck at 2:35, the clock hands will soon be turning again now that the city has approved an $11,745 repair contract with The Verdin Co. of Cincinnati.

The company is highly certified in repair work. In business since 1842, it specializes in clock repair, is a supplier of bronze bells, church bells and street clocks, and specializes in bell tower work.

Things are about to change in a city where the clock is right twice a day. The repairs will take about two months.

Keith Barber is a data reporter at The Daily Reporter. The clock on his desk always reads “quittin’ time.”
