BILL NUMBER: S6926

TITLE OF BILL :
An act in relation to allowing certain undersheriffs in the county of
Chemung to join the special retirement plan for sheriffs,
undersheriffs and deputy sheriffs


PURPOSE :
To allow certain deputy sheriffs of the county of Chemung to join the
special retirement plan for sheriffs, undersheriffs,and deputy
sheriffs.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section 1 of the bill authorizes the county of Chemung as a
participating employer in the New York State and Local Employees'
Retirement System, pursuant to section 551 of the retirement and
social security law, to offer a special retirement plan for sheriffs,
undersheriffs, and deputy sheriffs engaged in law enforcement
activities. Specifically, participation in such a retirement plan
would be made available to Michael Skrosknik. E. Scott Smith, Joseph
Dieterle, Richard Mathews, Kasey Slater, Ryan Wheeler, James Ritter,
and John M. Allen; deputy sheriffs employed by the county of Chemung.

Section 2 of the bill provides that all employer costs associated with
implementing the provisions of this act shall be borne by the county
of Chemung.

Section 3 of the bill provides for an immediate effective date.

This legislation comes at the request of the County of Chemung.
Inadvertently, Deputy Sheriffs Michael Skrosknik, E. Scott Smith,
Joseph Dieterle, Richard Mathews, Kasey Slater, Ryan Wheeler, James
Ritter, and John M. Allen were not enrolled in the New York State
Retirement Article 14-B section 551 plan for sheriffs, undersheriffs,
and deputy sheriffs. To rectify this matter, the County of Chemung
wishes to place the eight deputy sheriffs in the correct retirement
system. All expenses for this adjustment will be incurred by the
County of Chemung at the cost of an approximately $3,900 increase in
annual contributions and an immediate past service cost of
approximately $2,500.
