AN ACT to authorize the town of Carmel, in  the  county  of  Putnam,  to
  offer  an  optional  twenty  year  retirement  plan to police officers
  Robert Behan and James Evans


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the town of Carmel, in the county of Putnam, 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 secu-
rity law, to police officers employed by such town, is hereby authorized
to  make  participation in such plan available to Robert Behan, a police
sergeant, and James Evans, a police officer, employed  by  the  town  of
Carmel,  who,  for reasons not ascribable to their own negligence failed
to make a timely application to participate in such optional twenty year
retirement plan. The town of Carmel may so  elect  by  filing  with  the
state  comptroller,  on or before December 31, 2014, a resolution of the
town board together with certification that such police officers did not
bar themselves from participation in such retirement plan as a result of
their own negligence. Thereafter, such police officers 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 while so employed, by filing
a  request  to  that effect with the state comptroller on or before June
30, 2015.
  S 2.  All  past  service  costs  associated  with   implementing   the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the town of Carmel.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE. -- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This  bill  will  allow the Town of Carmel to reopen the provisions of
Section 384-d of the Retirement and Social Security Law for police offi-
cers Robert Behan and James Evans.
