Any other communities have Town clocks or church bells chiming overnight? Curious to find out how many communities have overnight bells?

Groton has their town clock in the Methodist Church steeple.  We pay the church $100 a year for rent and we also pay a town person $200 a year to wind it all the time and replace lights, etc.

Do any towns have Town Hall clocks that chime overnight? Or even church bells chiming overnight?
