the  city  of  Gloversville,  in  the  county of Fulton, a participating

and social security law, to firefighters employed by such city, is here-
by authorized to make participation in such  plan  available  to  Thomas
Mellis and Josh Frye, firefighters employed by the city of Gloversville,
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. Thereafter, Thomas Mellis and Josh  Frye,  may  elect  to  be
covered  by the provisions of section 384-d of the retirement and social
security law, and shall be entitled to  the  full  rights  and  benefits
associated with coverage under such section, by filing a request to that
effect with the state comptroller on or before December 31, 2012.
  S   2.  All  past  service  costs  associated  with  implementing  the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the city  of  Gloversville  and
may be amortized over a period of five years.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.-- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This  bill  will allow the City of Gloversville to elect to reopen the
provisions of Section 384-d of the Retirement and  Social  Security  Law
for firefighters Thomas J. Mellis and Joshua T. Frye.
