MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - Work to repair a western Michigan clock tower that was damaged by a storm is wrapping up.

The Muskegon Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1NY4iQs ) says that the April 12, 2014, storm blew out the east-facing clock face on the Muskegon Public’s Schools’ Hackley Administration Building clock tower.

Cincinnati-based Verdin Clocks used the south-facing clock to create a template mold to replace the east-facing clock that was destroyed.

Work to replace the clock faces on the 124-foot tower took place this month. Sam Wiltheiss is director of facilities and transportation for the district and says the cost was covered by insurance.

The building dates to the 1890s and the clock was an original part of the building.
