Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the town of Marlborough, in the county of Ulster, 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 town, is hereby authorized to make participation in such plan available to Charles Hoffman and Arthur S.

The town of Marlborough may so elect by filing with the state comptroller, on or before December 31, 2014, a resolution of the town board together with certification that such police officers did not bar themselves from participation in such retirement plan as a result of their own negligence. Thereafter, such police officers 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 while so employed, by filing a request to that effect with the state comptroller on or before June 30, 2015. S 2. All past service costs associated with implementing the provisions of this act shall be borne by the town of Marlborough. S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
