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 or regulation to the contrary and in order to promote the public good, the retirement board of the city of Pittsfield is hereby authorized and directed to credit Dennis H. Hall with the creditable service he would have received had he been employed by the city of Pittsfield's department of public works for the calendar years nineteen hundred and eighty-nine through nineteen hundred and ninety-two, for the purpose of determining his superannuation retirement allowance pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (a) of subdivision (2) of section five of chapter thirty-two of the General Laws; provided, however, that before the date any retirement allowance becomes effective, said Dennis H. Hall shall pay into the annuity savings fund of the city of Pittsfield retirement system in one sum, or in installments, upon such terms and conditions as the board may prescribe, an amount equal to that which would have been withheld as regular deductions from his regular compensation for the calendar years nineteen hundred and eighty-nine through nineteen hundred and ninety-two. In addition to the payment of the amount required by the preceding sentence, said Dennis H. Hall shall also pay into the annuity savings fund an amount of interest such that upon the completion of such payments the value of his accumulated payments under this paragraph, together with interest thereon, shall equal the value of his accumulated regular deductions for such period which would have resulted if such deductions had actually been made.
SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
