The Supreme Court of P.E.I. has ordered the Watermark Theatre in North Rustico to pay Thomas Edison Electric more than $10,000 for non-payment of services rendered.

A recent judgment issued by the court ordered the theatre to pay the electrical contractor $12,644.61 in total.

That figure represents the unpaid debt of $11,740.74, $21.87 in interest and costs amounting to $882.00.

Court documents indicate the company's services were utilized between February and March of this year.

An invoice for $16,740.74 was issued to the theatre on April 1.

The theatre in turn made a payment of $5,000 on June 2, leaving a balance of $11,740.74.

Monthly reminder statements were sent to the theatre in June, July and August.

A demand letter was sent to the theatre by the electrical contractor on Sept. 10.

"The defendant (Watermark Theatre) has refused or otherwise neglected to pay the amount owing," the statement of claim says.
