Let’s talk about the City Hall Clock Tower Bell

Brantford City Hall

BRANTFORD, ON – Last fall the City of Brantford was pleased to share that the iconic clock at the top of Brantford’s City Hall was restored to working order. As a focal point of the City’s downtown for over one hundred years, the clock is an important part of the city’s history. The restoration included modernizing the clock mechanisms and replacing the clock faces, clock hands, panes and caulking.

This spring the restoration work moved to the final stage which is repositioning the clock tower bell and connecting it to the clock mechanism. With that restoration work expected to be completed this summer, the City wants to hear from you about how often the bell should be programmed to chime.

“Public input from the community as whole, and especially those who live, work and study in the downtown, will be very important in determining a schedule for when the bell rings out,” says Brantford Mayor Kevin Davis. “This is such an iconic focal point of the downtown and an important part of the City’s history. I’m pleased that with the restoration work nearly complete, it can be enjoyed by the community for decades to come.”
