BILL NUMBER:S6428

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize
a certain individual to take the competitive civil service examination
and be placed on the eligible list for appointment as a full-time police
officer for the village of East Syracuse, county of Onondaga

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This legislation authorizes the State of New York to allow Christopher
Rowe, of the village of East Syracuse, in the county of Onondaga,
exemption from the age requirements of Civil Service Law Section 58.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Civil Service Law requires that a full-time competitive police
officer be no less than twenty years, and no more than thirty-five
years of age. This limits the ability of small municipalities such as
East Syracuse to locate and hire the best full-time police officers
available.

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 58 of the civil service law,
or any other law to the contrary, Christopher Rowe, who has been
continuously employed by the village of East Syracuse, in the county
of Onondaga, as a part-time patrolman, shall be eligible to take the
competitive civil service examination for the position of police
officer and shall, contingent upon his score on such examination, be
eligible to be placed on the eligible list for appointment as a
full-time patrolman for the village of East Syracuse.

Christopher Rowe shall otherwise be subject to the merit and fitness
provisions of the civil service law applicable to full-time police
officers.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
