AN ACT to authorize the village of Lyons to  offer  an  optional  twenty
  year retirement plan to Charles Witt who is employed by such village


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the village of Lyons, a participating employer in the New York state and
local police and fire retirement system,  which  previously  elected  to
offer  the optional twenty year retirement plan, established pursuant to
section 384-d of the retirement and social security law, to  members  of
the  retirement system employed by such village, is hereby authorized to
make participation in such plan available to Charles Witt, a firefighter
employed by the village of Lyons, who, for reasons not ascribable to his
own negligence, failed to make a timely application  to  participate  in
such  optional  twenty year retirement plan. The village of Lyons may so
elect by filing with the state comptroller, on or  before  December  31,
2013,  a  resolution of its local legislative body together with certif-
ication that Charles Witt did not bar himself from participation in such
retirement plan as a result of his own negligence.  Thereafter,  Charles
Witt  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
June 30, 2014.
  S 2. All employer costs associated with implementing the provisions of
this  act  shall  be  borne by the village of Lyons and the past service
costs associated with this act may be amortized over a period of five or
ten years.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
