by filing with the state comptroller, on or before December 31, 2013,  a
resolution  of  its governing body together with certification that such
deputy sheriff did not bar himself from participation in such retirement
plan as a result of his own negligence. Thereafter such  deputy  sheriff
may  elect to be covered by the provisions of section 553 of the retire-
ment and social security law, and shall be entitled to the  full  rights
and benefits associated with coverage under such section for the service
rendered with the county of Rensselaer only, by filing a request to that
effect with the state comptroller on or before June 30, 2014.
  S  2.  All  costs  incurred by the implementation of this act shall be
borne by the county of Rensselaer.
