such  service  rendered with the city of Newburgh by filing a request to
that effect with the state comptroller within  eighteen  months  of  the
effective date of this act.
  §  2. All employer past service costs associated with implementing the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the city of Newburgh and may be
amortized over a ten year period.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
