AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE TOWN OF CANTON TO APPOINT CERTAIN POLICE OFFICERS.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
Notwithstanding any other general or special law to the
contrary, the town of Canton may appoint as a police
person who was eligible for such appointment at the time the most recent civil
service examination was given, but has been rendered ineligible for appointment
by the town's acceptance of
section 58A of chapter 31 of
the General Laws by
a vote of the town under Article 37 of the warrant for the 2001 annual town
meeting. This authority to appoint such person as a police officer shall
continue until the current civil service list expires.
