  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  Little  Falls, in the county of Herkimer, a participating
employer in the New York state and  local  police  and  fire  retirement
system,  which  previously elected to offer the optional retirement plan
established pursuant to section 384-d of the retirement and social secu-
rity law to police officers employed by such city, is hereby  authorized
to  make  participation in such plan available to Justin Dibble a police
officer employed by the city of Little Falls, who, on the effective date
of this act is covered under the provisions  of  section  375-i  of  the
retirement  and social security law, and who, for reasons not ascribable

in such optional retirement plan. The city of Little Falls may so  elect
by  filing with the state comptroller, on or before December 31, 2020, a
resolution of its legislative body together with certification that such
police officer did not bar himself from participation in such retirement
plan as a result of his own negligence. Thereafter, 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 comptroller on or  before
June 30, 2021.
  §   2.  All  past  service  costs  associated  with  implementing  the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the state.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE. -- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill will allow the city of Little Falls to elect to  reopen  the
provisions  of  Section  384-d of the Retirement and Social Security Law
for police officer Justin Dibble.
