   (g)   The Mayor shall be authorized to condition the performance of the approved events for any reason rationally to the public health, welfare or safety and any such limitations or conditions shall be set forth in the approval correspondence or permit.  Such conditions may include, but not limited to, the provisions of police and fire protection.
