AN ACT to authorize the county of  Orleans to offer an  optional  twenty
  year  retirement  plan  to Ryan Flaherty, a deputy sheriff employed by
  such county


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
Ryan Flaherty, a member of the optional twenty-five year retirement plan
for  certain  sheriffs,  undersheriffs,  deputy  sheriffs and correction
officers pursuant to section 89-l of the retirement and social  security
law, who was employed by the Orleans county sheriff's office as of Janu-
ary  23,  2005,  and  who  through no fault of his own, failed to file a
timely application to participate in the special twenty year  retirement
plan  contained in section 553 of the retirement and social security law
resulting in the crediting of his service with the county of Orleans  in
the  retirement  plan  contained  in  section 89-l of such law, shall be
given full credit in the section 553 twenty  year  retirement  plan  for
such  service  upon  the election of the county of Orleans to assume the
additional cost of such service and his election to participate in  such
plan.  The  county of Orleans may so elect within one year of the effec-
tive 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 deputy sheriff may elect to be covered by the provisions of
section 553 of the retirement and social security law and shall be enti-
tled to the full rights and benefits associated with coverage under such
section by filing a request to that effect with  the  state  comptroller
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 Orleans county, and may be  amortized
over a period of five years.
  § 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
