AN ACT to authorize the village of Menands, in the county of  Albany  to
  offer  an optional twenty year retirement plan to police officer Aaron
  St. Gelais

  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 village of Menands, in the county of Albany, a participating employ-
er  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  police  officers  employed  by  such town, is hereby
authorized to make participation in such plan  available  to  Aaron  St.
Gelais, a police officer employed by the village of Menands with a start
date  of  October  2,  2010,  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 Menands may so
elect by filing with the state comptroller, on or  before  December  31,
2013,  a  resolution  of its town board together with certification that
such police officer did not  bar  himself  from  participation  in  such
retirement  plan  as  a  result  of his own negligence. Thereafter, such
police officer 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 past costs associated with  implementing  the  provisions  of
this act shall be borne by the village of Menands.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Section 50 of the Legislative Law:

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