Wicomico Co. Moving Forward To Get Clock Tower Ticking Again

Posted: Updated:
SALISBURY, Md. - Since October, the historic clock tower in Salisbury has been boarded up.

There's now a movement to restore the relic.

Wicomico County executive Rick Pollitt tells 47 ABC the county is officially seeking bids to get the clock ticking again. The cost is unknown at this time, but we're told estimates are as high as $12,000, which is just the clock facing.

Pollitt says there's more work to be done afterwards.

"The whole courthouse is historic, but it is showing signs of age, not only in the tower but the roof, the windows, the general exterior of the court building," said Pollitt. "That's going to take a much more expensive and much more involved process."

Bidding opens up next month and the county hopes to choose a contract in June.
