A former state representative candidate wants more financial details regarding the failed Michael Bolton concert, while another resident is challenging a development approval.
Trumbull resident Louis Bevilacqua, who received 90 votes for the 123rd seat of the Connecticut House of Representatives, has asked for the financials of the concert, the cost of which has been estimated between $20,000 and $77,000.
First Selectman Tim Herbst has said the cost is reduced by past concert profits. Many other residents say it's really $77,000.
"The law is rather clear, especially with public monies, such a thing should be publically accessible," said Bevilacqua, who declined to comment further because it is pending litigation.

Herbst said the suit has been referred to a Town Attorney. A hearing date before the Freedom of Information in Hartford has not yet been set.
Patricia Ann Tividar, of Plattsville Road, Trumbull, claims the Trumbull Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission erred when it approved a 120,620 square-foot, Bridgeport Hospital-related cancer treatment center at 5520 Park Ave. Plattsville Road runs near the site, which already has medical facilities there.
The area borders on Trumbull, Easton, Fairfield and Bridgeport and the Merritt Parkway. The decision paved the way for the proposal to go the Planning and Zoning Commission.
"The decision of the watercourses commission was illegal, arbitrary and in abuse of the discretion vested in the commission," the suit states. RDR 5520 LLC is the applicant.
The Planning and Zoning Commission has conducted and closed the public hearing on the proposal, and approved it on Nov. 20. Construction could begin in a year if the wetlands approval stands.
