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 to the contrary and in order to promote the public good, the State-Boston retirement board is hereby authorized and directed to retire Randolph G. LaMattina, a police officer of the city of Boston, who, as a result of injuries sustained while in the performance of his duties on August sixteenth, nineteen hundred and eighty-five, is totally and permanently incapacitated from further service as a police officer. The annual amount of pension payable to Randolph G. LaMattina under this act shall be fixed in an amount equal to the regular rate of compensation which would have been paid had he continued in service as a police officer in said city at the grade held by him at the time of his retirement. Such retirement shall become effective as of the date following the last day on which he is entitled to receive regular compensation. Upon the retirement of Randolph G.

SECTION 2. The provisions of section one hundred of chapter forty-one of the General Laws shall continue to apply to Randolph G. LaMattina relative to his indemnification by the city of Boston for any hospital, medical and related expenses which may be incurred by him after the date of his retirement as a result of the aforementioned incapacity.
SECTION 3. Upon the death of Randolph G. LaMattina, if his wife, Constance S. LaMattina survives him and as long as she remains unmarried, the city of Boston shall pay to said Constance S. LaMattina an annual annuity equal to the sum of three-fourths of the amount of the pension payable to said Randolph G. LaMattina at the time of his death and three hundred and twelve dollars for each child of said Randolph G. LaMattina for such time as such child is under eighteen years of age or totally physically or mentally incapacitated from working. If Constance S. LaMattina remarries, said city of Boston shall pay to her, in lieu of the aforesaid annuity, an annual annuity of five hundred and twenty dollars for each child of said Randolph G. LaMattina for such time as such child is residing with her and is either under eighteen years of age on January first of the year in question or totally physically or mentally incapacitated from working.
