(a)   Permit Required for Operation Out of Doors or in Public Places. No person shall operate any loudspeaker, radio, phonograph or other instrument for the reproduction of sound (except for unamplified radios in motor vehicles) outside of any building, or in any street or public place out of doors, in the Borough, without first having obtained a permit therefor as provided in subsections (b) and (c) hereof.
   (b)   Application for Permit; Issuance. Any person who desires to operate any sound device, as referred to in subsection (a) hereof, in any street or public place in the Borough, any part of which or any attachment to which is outside of a building, so that sound from the device will spread into any street or other public place in the Borough, shall apply to the Mayor for a permit to do so. If the Mayor is satisfied that the granting of the permit will not create a public nuisance or interfere with the public peace or the rights of any other person, he or she may grant a permit to the applicant for a period of not more than ten days, provided that the applicant first pays to the Mayor, for the use of the Borough, a fee of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) a day for the permit.
   (c)   Conditions for Permit. When a permit is issued, as provided in subsection (b) hereof, it shall entitle the holder of the permit to operate the sound device referred to in the permit according to such restrictions as the Mayor shall impose at the time of issuance of the permit, subject to the following general restrictions:
      (1)   No such sound device shall be operated on any day before 8:00 a.m. or after 8:00 p.m.
      (2)   The sound device may be operated on the streets designated in the permit, but not in the vicinity of any school building, hospital or church. However, this section shall not prohibit the use of a sound device in connection with games in the athletic field at the rear of the Lincoln School Building and shall not prohibit the dissemination, in any manner, of emergency announcements and directions and information to the public in times of emergency.
   Whoever, being a permit holder, violates any provision of this section, or of the specific conditions of the permit, shall be guilty of a violation of this section, and the Mayor shall have authority to revoke the permit granted to the person under subsection (b) hereof.
