January 10, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Former Punxsutawney Borough Police officer Sean Weaver extended an olive branch in the form of a settlement to the members of Punxs-utawney Borough Council during Monday’s monthly meeting.

In August 2010, council did not offer Weaver and Pat Renwick full-time police employment at the end of their probationary periods. But during its Sept. 13 meeting, council hired Renwick but not Weaver.

Monday, Weaver spoke to council regarding a lawsuit he filed against the borough for not hiring him full-time.
