BROOKVILLE â€” Almost a year after he was denied a full-time job as a police officer in Punxsy, Sean Weaver has a job in Brookville.
After calling an executive session to discuss personnel matters Tuesday, Brookville Borough Council hired Weaver as a part-time police officer for the Brookville Borough Police Department.
Weaver worked as a Pennsylvania State Police officer from 1991 to 2010, after which he retired and worked for Punxsy police on a part-time basis.

Setree said a new establishment owned by his family will hopefully be completed by January 2012.
