AN ACT to authorize Dustin Waldron to  receive  certain  service  credit
  under section 384-d of the retirement and social security law


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the village of East Aurora, in  the  county  of  Erie,  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 security law, to police officers employed by such village, is
hereby authorized to make participation in such plan available to Dustin
Waldron, a police officer employed by such village, who, for reasons not
ascribable to his own negligence, failed to make a timely application to
participate  in  such  optional twenty-year retirement plan. Thereafter,
Dustin Waldron 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 as well as section 384-e of such law, provided that a request to
that effect is filed with the state comptroller within one year from the
effective date of this act.
  §   2.  All  past  service  costs  associated  with  implementing  the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the village of East Aurora  and
may be amortized over a period of five years.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  Fiscal Note.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This  bill  would  allow  the  Village  of  East  Aurora to reopen the
provisions of Section 384-d together with Section 384-e of  the  Retire-
ment and Social Security Law for police officer Dustin Waldron.

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