              SECTION 1. Notwithstanding section 7 of chapter 32 of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, and in order to promote the public good, the retirement board of the city of Everett shall retire Michael Marchese, a police officer of the city of Everett, who as a result of injuries sustained while in the performance of his duties is totally and permanently injured and incapacitated for further service as a police officer. Michael Marchese shall receive a yearly amount of pension equal to the regular rate of compensation which would have been paid had he continued in service as an Everett police officer at the grade held by him at the time of his retirement. Such retirement board of the city shall pay him all amounts credited to him in the annuity savings fund of the retirement board of the city of Everett.

              SECTION 2. Upon the death of Michael Marchese, with his wife surviving him, the retirement board of the city of Everett shall pay to her so long as she remains unmarried, an annuity in the amount of three-fourths of the amount of the pension payable to him at the time of his death, and $530.00 for each child of Michael Marchese during the time that the child is under 18 years of age or over that age and physically or mentally incapacitated from working. If his spouse remarries, the city shall pay, in lieu of this annuity to her, an amount equal to the amount of pension payable to Michael Marchese at the time of his death, to and for the benefit of the children of Michael Marchese who are under 18 years of age or physically or mentally incapacitated from working.

              SECTION 3. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
