MUSCATINE, Iowa — Keeping track of time is a bit easier in Muscatine now that a clock atop the county courthouse is back in operation.

The Muscatine Journal reported ( ) Tuesday that repairs on the Muscatine County Courthouse clock have been completed and all four clock dials are working again.

The county paid a Cincinnati company about $26,000 to repair the clock, which had been stuck at about 4:20.

The tower and courthouse were completed in 1910. The clock has mechanical parts dating to the 1940s.

Muscatine County Budget Coordinator Sherry Seright says county workers still need to complete some lighting work in the tower.
