Lovettsville Mayor Bob Zoldos has tapped outgoing Planning Commissioner Buck Smith as the town’s new “czar” responsible for organizing the drive to raise funds to install the clock faces in the Town Square’s clock tower.
The Town Council approved the appointment last week, so Smith can begin work immediately—focusing mainly on sponsorships, merchandise sales and crowdfunding.
Smith was selected, the mayor acknowledged, because he came to the town with a detailed plan on how to fund the project—and a lot of excitement and enthusiasm for taking on the challenge.
Smith’s seat on the Planning Commission has been taken by Chris Hornbaker. The longtime town volunteer has served on several Planning Commission Comprehensive Plan subcommittees and is a regular attendee at commission meetings.
