An Act Authorizing the Town of Winchendon to Continue the Employment of Allen J. Lafrennie as Fire Chief.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, Allen J.

Lafrennie shall, at his own expense, be examined by an impartial physician designated by said town to determine such capacity.  No further deductions shall be made from the regular compensation o f said employee under the provisions of Chapter 32 of the General Laws for service subsequent to February 28, 2010 and upon retirement said employee shall receive a superannuation retirement allowance equal to that which he would have been entitled had he retired on said date.
