BILL NUMBER:S7369

TITLE OF BILL:
An act in relation to authorizing certain individuals to take the
competitive civil service examination and be placed on the eligible
list for appointment as a part-time police officer for the town of
Elmira, county of Chemung

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This legislation authorizes the State of New York to allow Cory
Ripley, of the Town of Horseheads in Chemung County, and Mr. Patrick
Dotts of the Town of Elmira in Chemung County, 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
Elmira to locate and hire the best part-time police officers
available.

Mr. Ripley (Horseheads) and Mr. Dotts (Elmira) are police Academy
graduates who are currently serving as a part-time police officers in
the Elmira town Department and would qualify as a top-tier candidate
for the available position if the age restriction did not disqualify
them.

Mr. Ripley and Mr. Dotts have reputations that have earned them the
full support of the town Board along with the Chief of police in the
town of Elmira, yet the town is unable to allow them to continue in
their part-time positions.

It has therefore been requested by the town that this legislation be
enacted upon by the State in order to afford these gentlemen the
opportunity to be exempt from the age requirements of civil service
Law Section 58, to allow them to take the Civil Service Exam and enter
the pool of qualified applicants for the open positions.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
