Bloomberg Installs Count-Up Clocks At City Hall

NEW YORK (AP) – Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants City Hall staffers to be mindful of their minutes.

Count-up clocks have been installed in meeting rooms at City Hall to help people keep track of how much time is passing. The hope is that meetings will become more efficient.

The Wall Street Journal reports that two of the clocks are in the office where Bloomberg works with his top staffers. Another one is in a conference room and a fourth is in the room where Bloomberg holds morning staff meetings. Another eight are expected to be installed.

Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser tells the Journal the clocks were paid for with private money.

    I bet theses clocks don”t cost as the ones he had installed for CITY TIME

    Time elapsed = Current time – Start time. If the geniuses at City Hall don’t know how to figure that out in 3 secs or less, we need to fix a lot more than our school system. This is the grand idea we get after 9 yrs in City Hall? Jeez…

    How about a GIANT COUNT DOWN CLOCK to tell us when Mini Mayor will be gone for good?? I’ll pay for it.

    1. Joe Pedestrian says:

      I’ll be happy to help you pay for it!
