I apologize for the delay in responding to your question, but I wanted my answer to be correct. I asked a member of Chapter 190 who lives in Santa Paula, to verify that the clock is operational. Here is Paul's answer:
"I drove over just now to look at the street clock. It is currently functional and keeping time. The City of SP owns the clock, which was donated a few years ago by the widow of a gentleman who had a clock shop at that location, and the Public Works Department is responsible for it. I spoke to the Public Works Director a few months ago and he said that he assigned one of his staff members to read the instruction manual and be “in charge” of the street clock. Nevertheless the Director said he would welcome our involvement in the event it malfunctions. I asked him to contact me if a problem arises. I think it’s probably a fairly ordinary electric clock under the antique style case. My opinion is that at the moment it doesn’t need Chapter 190’s attention but it might at some time in the future."
