If the Town is, allegedly "suffering" from a short fall in revenues, "Why" the "free concerts" ? Brookhaven Running Out of Surplus Funds Town has recently relied on surplus funds to balance its budget, but cannot continue to do so, Times Beacon Record newspapers report.

In addition, How can these concerts be "Free", if, in some cases, a Town sticker, with the new, raised "user fee", is required to get to the concert ? DUH, we Tax Payers are STOOO-pid, Huh ?
