The city of Sarasota honored the late Carroll “Corky” Ramsey Friday, Sept. 14, for his efforts in restoring the historic clock in Five Points Park. The former Parks and Recreation Department employee played a major role in restoring the clock in 1992, after he found it abandoned in a storage facility.
During Friday’s ceremony, Mayor Suzanne Atwell and Dr. Clifford Smith, senior planner of the historic preservation department, dedicated a plaque to Ramsey, which recognizes his role in restoring a piece of Sarasota History.
