Council takes no action on Weaver's proposal
PUNXSUTAWNEY — Monday, Punxsutawney Borough Council took no action regarding a proposal former probational Punxsutawney Borough Police Officer Sean Weaver made at the Jan. 10 council meeting.
According to the Jan. 10 minutes, Weaver said it was requested that he have his attorney, Jeffrey S. DuBois, draft an agreement to bring a fair, equitable and amicable end to the lawsuit that he filed against the borough relative to his release at the end of his probationary period.
"I urge each of you council members to accept the terms of the agreement to bring a fair and equitable resolution to the matter," Weaver said Jan. 10. "As of yet, the details of the lawsuit have not been released to the media. I urge you to accept the agreement despite all the false accusations made, and let bygones be bygones."
Council President Susan Glessner said at that meeting Solicitor Timothy Morris was on vacation, and on the advice of its attorneys, council would make no comment due to the pending lawsuit.
Monday, Mayor Jim Wehrle asked council to vote on the proposal, but Morris, who was on hand, said council can't vote on the matter due to pending litigation.
Morris said as far as he knew, Weaver had an attorney, while Wehrle said he was told something different, but did not elaborate.
Weaver, who was also in attendance Monday, said for the record that his attorney — DuBois — gave the proposal to Wehrle.
