That’s why city officials felt obliged to send out a message late this week that the clock will be stopped for needed repairs from next week, and be out of operation for around 10 days.

“We know that many people follow the City Hall clock on a daily basis,” acting City Hall manager Alejandro Saldivar told news bureau NTB. “Therefore we wanted to to make folks aware that it will be standing still for awhile.”
