A new clock tower stands tall in the village of Liverpool. It was all made possible by donations from local residents and businesses. YNN's Brad Vivacqua has more on the effort to make the clock tower a reality.
LIVERPOOL, N.Y. -- The clock tower has finally become a reality in the village of Liverpool.
A group of community members and business owners, led by Fisher Construction, raised about $32,000 to purchase and install the clock.
The clock tower can be seen at the intersection of Oswego and First Streets. It is surrounded by bricks, that can be purchased and engraved for $50.
"I think if people come down here and take a look at the bricks, they kind of tell a story themselves about what people have written on them, and they will probably want to get a brick," noted Jack Fisher, Fisher Construction Company. "And, they still can, even though we're done as a company, the village of Liverpool will still be able to supply them with bricks if they want to buy them."
Donors who provided at lease $500 are inscribed on the post of the tower. So far, about 200 bricks have been purchased, and there are still many available.
A dedication ceremony will be held Wednesday night.
