ST. CLAIR, Mich. (AP) - The city of St. Clair has a new landmark on its international riverfront.

The Times Herald of Port Huron (http://bwne.ws/1t8cJmi ) says local businessman Ed Sawdon donated the 90-foot, four-dial street clock to the city. It’s been installed at the south entrance to Palmer Park along the St. Clair River, which separates Michigan from the Canadian province of Ontario.

The clock features lions’ heads and four nameplates on each side that read “St. Clair.”

The clock was built to order by the Electric Time Co. of Medfield, Massachusetts. Sawdon also donated the costs of labor, installation and planting of arbor vitae and benches.

St. Clair Mayor Bill Cedar says Sawdon wants people to say, ‘I’ll meet you at the clock.’”

Sawdon founded BTM Corp. in nearby Marysville, south of Port Huron.
