PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Peaks Ice Arena manager Max Rabner has made a last-minute payment on his overdue rent to the arena's owner, but it was less than owed and it is not yet known whether it will prevent him from being evicted.
Fourth District Judge Derek Pullan ruled in February that if the Provo City/Utah County Ice Sheet Authority, which owns the facility, posted a three-point-five (M)million dollars surety bond as insurance against Rabner's interests in the arena, then Rabner would have ten business days to pay rent owed since 2003.
Pullan's clerk say Rabner indeed made a payment to the court, slipping a check into the after-hours drop box at the Provo courthouse at about 11:30 p.m. Monday.
But the payment was for only 200 thousand dollars -- more than 86 thousand dollars short of the amount owed.
It is now up to Pullan to decide whether Rabner has failed to meet his obligation.
