AN ACT AUTHORIZING JOHN C. DRINKWATER TO TAKE A CIVIL SERVICE EXAMINATION FOR THE POSITION OF FIREFIGHTER NOTWITHSTANDING THE MAXIMUM AGE REQUIREMENTS.
Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would
tend to defeat its purpose, which is to
immediately allow for the taking of a civil service examination for the
position of firefighter,
therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law,
necessary for the immediate preservation of the
public welfare and convenience.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
SECTION 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or
special law or rule to the
contrary regulating the maximum age of applicants for appointment as a
firefighter, John C. Drinkwater, of the town of Norwood, shall be eligible
to take the open competitive examination for the position of firefighter to
be held on November twenty-third, nineteen hundred and eighty-five and,
provided he meets all other requirements, shall be eligible for
certification and appointment.
SECTION 2. Notwithstanding the provisions of section one of
this act, John C. Drinkwater shall not be eligible for appointment to the position of
firefighter in a city or town unless such city or town has accepted the
provisions of this act authorizing said appointment.
