    New Jersey's Casino Reinvestment Development Authority is considering the possibility of building a permanent stage on Atlantic City's beach following the success of Sunday's Maroon 5 concert.

    Board Vice Chairman Robert Mulcahy III said at Tuesday's meeting that a permanent stage “makes it very easy to schedule five or six of these over the summer.''

    The Press of Atlantic City reports plans for a permanent stage are on hold until officials hear if Gov. Chris Christie intends to sign a bill passed this summer by the state legislature that would virtually defund the agency.

    Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian says the CRDA would still have “some'' access to about $63 million generated by other taxes if the bill gets passed.

    The city hosts country music group Rascal Flatts Thursday.
