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

   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-e 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.
