After four months on the ground, Petrolia’s iconic clock on the top of its tower has returned.

The clockworks have been repaired and the clock face replaced. The clock has also been repainted and reinforced with steel. It had to be taken down for repairs because the wood used in the reconstruction of the tower after the fire in 1989 had rotted.

The total cost for the repairs is about $175,000. Additional refurbishment continues at Victoria Hall until at least the end of June.
