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, Robert G. Gaynor, a member of the police department of the town of Halifax, may continue to serve in the position of special police officer until September 7, 2026, the date of his retirement or the date on which he is relieved of his duties by the chief of police, whichever occurs first; provided, however, that he is mentally and physically capable of performing the duties of the position. The board of selectmen of the town of Halifax may, at its own expense, require that Robert G. Gaynor 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 Robert G. Gaynor pursuant to chapter 32 of the General Laws for service subsequent to the date on which he reaches 65 years of age and upon retirement Robert G. Gaynor shall receive a superannuation retirement allowance equal to that which would have been entitled had he retired at the age of 65.

SECTION 2.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.

Approved, April 15, 2020.
