(A)   A person is guilty of a misdemeanor if he or she operates or permits the operation of an amplified or un-amplified radio, tape, cassette, stereo, television, phonograph, musical instrument, boom box, loud speaker other electronic sound producing device, or similar device, which causes total noise exceeding 82 DBA or which may be heard more than one hundred feet away from the source of the noise. As used in this section, DBA means decibels measured on the A-weighted network of a sound level meter, as specified in American National Standards Institute Standard S1.4. If it is shown that the noise level is in excess of the DBA level established in this section or may be heard more than 100 feet from the source of the noise, that evidence shall be prima facie evidence that the person is producing unreasonable noise as prohibited by this section.
   (B)   Any police officer may issue a citation to the offender for any violation committed in his or her presence without the necessity of a prior complaint from any other person. The provisions of this section shall not apply to city approved special events such as the annual Wyandotte Street Art Fair, concerts, festivals or other similar events.
