AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE TOWN OF NORFOLK TO CONTINUE THE EMPLOYMENT OF FIRE CHIEF COLEMAN BUSHNELL

     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 any general or special law to the contrary, Coleman Bushnell, chief of the fire department of the town of Norfolk, may continue to serve in the position until March 28, 2022, until his retirement, or until he is relieved of his duties by the board of selectmen of the town of Norfolk, whichever occurs first; provided, however, that he is mentally and physically capable of performing the duties of his office. The board of selectmen may, at its own expense, require that Coleman Bushnell be examined by an impartial physician designated by the board to determine such capability. No further deductions shall be made from the regular compensation of Coleman Bushnell under chapter 32 of the General Laws for any service subsequent to March 28, 2017, and upon retirement, he shall receive a superannuation retirement allowance equal to that which he would have been entitled had he retired on that date.
     SECTION 2.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.

Approved, January 29, 2016.
