I've been living in River Falls, WI for the summer, and the entire time I've been meaning to post this picture. I'd like to say River Falls is similar to Townieville, but it's on the edge of the Twin Cities metro-area, and therefore cannot be considered "the middle of nowhere". However... the city does have penny parking meters. The first 12 minutes are free, and every 12 minutes after that will literally cost you a "pretty penny". Man, I love Wisconsin!
