  • Chapter 18 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE CITY OF LAWRENCE TO CONTINUE THE EMPLOYMENT OF POLICE OFFICER PAUL SUTTON.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:


SECTION 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, Paul Sutton, a patrolman in the police department of the city of Lawrence, may continue in such office or position until he reaches age 70; provided, however, that he is mentally and physically capable of performing the duties of his office or position; and provided, further, that he shall hold said office subject to the approval of the appointing authority, and may be removed therefrom in accordance with the provisions of chapter 31 of the General Laws. The appointing authority may, at its own expense, require said Paul Sutton to be examined by the retirement board of the city of Lawrence to determine his capability for continued service.

Deductions shall continue to be made from the regular compensation of said Paul Sutton under the provisions of chapter 32 of the General Laws for any service performed between age 65 and 70, and upon retirement said Paul Sutton shall receive a superannuation allowance, or a veteran's pension allowance, as applicable, equal to that appropriate for his full years of creditable service, including any such actual service between age 65 and 70. Should said Paul Sutton be determined to be not capable of continuing in service pursuant to an examination by an impartial physician as provided for in this act, he shall be retired for superannuation, and shall not be presumed by virtue of such determination to be disabled for the purposes of said chapter 32.

SECTION 2. This act shall take effect as of January 30, 2000.

Approved February 1, 2000.
