PROSPERITY — Ed West from the Prosperity Utility Department reported to Prosperity Town Council that the hands for the new clock will be coming in soon.
The clock will have different style hands and a different face altogether. The only thing that will not be shipped with the new clock is the glass. Currently, the clock is made out of plexiglass, which tends to fade and crack.
The new clock will come with new features such as daylight savings time and automatic reset during power outages. Council will meet to look at the different options of hands and clock faces.
