Canandaigua, N.Y. - Time has stood still for decades, but that's all about to change.
The large clock on top of City Hall stopped working in 1985.
Dick McGavern and Byron Delavan are leading an effort to repair the clock and take it back to the future.
"This sets Canandaigua apart. It's a mark of the quality of our city to have a clock that works in the tower," said former mayor Dick McGavern.
The $20,000 repair bill will be paid from private donations.
"I received two calls this morning from people who say, 'how do I contribute? Where can I give my money?,'" Byron Delavan said.
Canandaigua National Bank delivered a $5,000 check today to help foot the clock repair bill.
Work is expected to start on the clock next week.
McGavern and Delavan expect the clock to once again tell time by January, when the city celebrates its 100th anniversary.
The clock dates back to the 1850s when it was built in New York City.
