Clallam: Faulty motor to blame for frozen courthouse clock

The Clallam County Courthouse clock tower has remained frozen for two weeks.

County Parks Department officials said a faulty motor that moves the weight mechanism in the 86-year-old tower was to blame.

Parks officials have sent the motor to Tacoma to undergo repairs. They are unsure when the clock will return to service.

In the meantime, they”ve replaced bearings in the tower.

The county spent $233,170 in 1999 to provide a facelift to the brick facade and restore the clock tower.
