AN ACT to authorize the village of Clayton to offer an  optional  twenty
  year  retirement  plan  to  a  certain police officer employed by such
  village

  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,
Joshua  David,  a member of the New York state and local police and fire
retirement system who was employed as a police officer for  the  village
of  Clayton in 2009, and who through no fault of his own, failed to file
a timely application to participate in the special twenty  year  retire-
ment  plan contained in section 384-d of the retirement and social secu-
rity law resulting in the crediting of his service with the  village  of
Clayton  in  the retirement plan contained in section 375-i of such law,
shall be given full credit in the  section  384-d  special  twenty  year
retirement  plan  for  such  service upon the election of the village of
Clayton to assume the additional cost of such service and  his  election
to participate in such plan.  The village of Clayton may so elect within
one  year  of  the  effective date of this act, by filing with the state
comptroller a resolution of its local  legislative  body  together  with
certification that such member did not bar himself from participation in
such retirement plan as a result of his own negligence.
  §  2. 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  comp-
troller within eighteen months of the effective date of this act.
  §  3.  All employer past service costs associated with the implementa-
tion of this act shall be borne by the village of Clayton,  and  may  be
amortized over a period of five years.
