LA City Council Targeting Homeowners Who Allow Filming On Their Property
LOS ANGELES (KNX 1070) — The Los Angeles City Council is targeting property owners who allow their places to be used by film crews which have not pulled the proper permits.
KNX 1070′s Bill Cooper reports.
Residents say crews park big trucks on narrow neighborhood streets, sometimes blocking driveways and disrupting neighborhood life, sometimes for days.
“We’ve had unpermitted porn shoots where people have been actually walking around the streets naked. That’s probably the most extreme case,” said West side councilman Paul Koretz of the recent complaints he has received.
Koretz wants to augment current penalties targeting the unpermitted film crews to include property owners, and impose stiffer fines.
The city attorney now has the job of drafting this into law.
