A temporary variance permit may be issued for special events, such as circuses, 4th of July celebrations and similar community events, which are limited in duration [[and are generally acceptable to the people of the community;]] >>,<< provided that precautions are taken to maintain the noises produced at the lowest practical level.

 

Part 2.  Section 80-73-3-a-2 of the code is amended to read:
