ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla.-- The cost of St. Augustine's Mumford and Sons concert isn't music to the ears of city commissioners.
They learned Monday night it will cost the city $417,000 to cover things like security, transportation, and logistics to host more than 25,000 concertgoers.
Commissioners approved the expenditure by a 3-to-1 vote.
Vice Mayor Nancy Sikes-Kline was the one nay vote. She told Action News, "I want to be very careful with how we spend the money. I want to be very careful and prudent with that."
City leaders expect to make the money back by various means, including transportation and parking.
The 2-day concert is set for Sept. 13th and 14th at Francis Field.
