The Okotoks Olde Town Plaza's clock is currently under repair.

Time caught up with the clock's inner workings, as its gears were found to be stripped.

According to a post from Mayor Tanya Thorn, it's not exactly a simple fix.

The parts in need of repair have been shipped to the manufacturer.

It's expected the work will take a few weeks to complete.
