Fixing the Beechmont Clock

IMG_20151021_115544

We have just engaged the Verdin Company in Cincinnati to survey the clock and estimate what it will cost to bring it back and refurbish it, the survey will cost $525 (paid by BNA) which is a lot of $10 annual memberships. We estimate that the total project will cost about $8-10,000 to complete. We will be looking for help with this cost from the Councilperson and also Parks. The survey should take place in the next week or so. Here’s a link to Verdin that shows what we intend to have happen with this .. http://www.verdin.com/clocks/repair-restoration.php
