DENISON, Tex. -- The old Denison High School clock tower is on the ground, but now it has "for sale" sign on it, according to the contractor who brought it down.
Contractor Tommy Franklin says the city hasn't paid him for it yet, so he put the signs up because he needs to collect the money.
"I’m not like these other people. Every week they get a paycheck. It don't matter whether they do anything or not. If I don't get something done, I get no paycheck. That's how I make a living and pay bills. I'm not different from you people," Franklin said.
City manager Larry Cruise said the city received the invoice for the clock, and that they have plans to pay Franklin, but that it takes more than a day to cut a check.
