Workers began renovation work on the C.L. Hoover Opera House’s clock and bell tower Tuesday in Junction City.

David Seay — from Manhattan’s Regulator Time Company — is conducting the project, which will update the clock’s movements with new equipment and reinstall the ringing capability of the bell inside the tower. Opera House co-Director Joe Markley said the project will be funded by various foundations and individual donors, and will cost $25,000.

“We hope to have everything finished in the next few weeks,” Markley said.
