LOS ANGELES (CNS) –  Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar wants his colleagues to put the brakes on rapper Jay-Z’s planned two-day music festival planned for  Grand Park in late August.

Huizar says his office, as well as residents and business owners in the area, were not informed of the “large-scale” event, even though the festival is taking place in his council district.

Huizar wants the council to direct the Bureau of Street Services, the police department and the Transportation Department to hold off on issuing permits until city staff report back on “public safety concerns and any necessary cost implications” of the event.
