LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Two Los Angeles City Council members are at odds over who should take over the annual Fourth of July Fireworks Extravaganza at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum.

2 Council Members At Odds Over 4th Of July Fireworks Show At Coliseum

Councilman Bernard Parks said he created the event and it should remain under his control.

Councilman Curren Price, whose district includes the Coliseum, wants to put on the show himself.

Parks claims he’s being pushed out as part of a retaliation effort because he spoke out against a deal giving USC control of the Coliseum.

“[Price] is trying to take it over,” Parks said. “I sit next to him for the last eight months, he’s never mentioned fireworks. I don’t think he’s ever been to the fireworks show.”

In a statement, Price said it’s only logical that he would want to produce the fireworks show and to suggest any wrongdoing is uncalled for.
