  retirement plan to deputy sheriffs Thomas Van Wie and Karen Ott-Kelley

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the county of Erie, a participating employer in the New York  state  and
local employees retirement system, which previously elected to offer the
optional  twenty  year  retirement plan, established pursuant to section
552 of the retirement  and  social  security  law,  and  the  additional
pension  benefits  to  members  of  such  plan,  established pursuant to
section 553 of the retirement and  social  security  law,  to  sheriffs,
under-sheriffs  and  deputy  sheriffs employed by such county, is hereby
authorized to make participation in such plan and benefits available  to
Thomas  Van  Wie  and  Karen Ott-Kelley, deputy sheriffs employed by the
county of Erie since September 5, 2006 and July 31, 2004,  respectively,
who,  for reasons not ascribable to their own negligence, failed to make
a timely application to participate in such optional twenty year retire-
ment plan and the additional pension benefits therefor.  The  county  of
Erie  may  so  elect  by filing with the state comptroller, on or before
December 31, 2011, a resolution of its local legislative  body  together
with certification that such deputy sheriffs did not bar themselves from
participation  in  such  retirement plan as a result of their own negli-
gence. Thereafter, such deputy sheriffs may elect to be covered  by  the
provisions of sections 552 and 553 of the retirement and social security
law,  and  shall  be entitled to the full rights and benefits associated
with coverage under such sections, by filing a request  to  that  effect
with the state comptroller on or before June 30, 2012.
  S 2. All employer costs associated with implementing the provisions of
this act shall be borne by the county of Erie.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
