AN ACT to authorize the city of Cortland, in the county of  Cortland  to
  offer  an  optional  twenty-year retirement plan to firefighter Travis
  Marshall

  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,
the city of Cortland, in the county of Cortland, a participating employ-
er  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 firefighters employed by such city, is hereby author-
ized to make participation in such plan available to Travis Marshall,  a
firefighter  employed  by  the  city  of  Cortland, who, for reasons not
ascribable to his own negligence, failed to make a timely application to
participate in such optional twenty-year retirement plan.  The  city  of
Cortland  may  so  elect by filing with the state comptroller, within 12
months of the effective date of this act, a resolution of its own common
council together with certification that such firefighter  did  not  bar
himself  from  participation  in such retirement plan as a result of his
own negligence.  Thereafter, such firefighter 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  comptroller  within 6 months of the city of Cortland's
filing.
  § 2. All past costs associated with  implementing  the  provisions  of
this  act  shall  be borne by the city of Cortland, and may be amortized
over a period of ten years.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE. -- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD15532-02-0
