Editor's Note: This ordinance superseded former Art. I, Police Pension Plan, adopted 9-7-1978 by Ord. No. 6-78, as amended.
Harvey's Lake Borough (the Borough), being a member municipality of the Pennsylvania Municipal Retirement System (the System), hereby elects to amend its Police Pension Plan administered by the System in accordance with Article IV of the Pennsylvania Municipal Retirement Law, 53 P.S. § 881.101 et seq. (Retirement Law), and does hereby agree to be bound by all the requirements and provisions of the Retirement Law and the Municipal Pension Plan Funding Standard and Recovery Act, 53 P.S. § 895.101 et seq., and to assume all obligations, financial and otherwise, placed upon member municipalities.
As part of this chapter, the Borough agrees that the System shall administer and provide the benefits set forth in the amended Police Pension Plan Contract entered into between the Pennsylvania Municipal Retirement Board and the Borough effective January 1, 2014 (the contract).
The passage and adoption of this chapter by the Borough is an official acceptance of the contract and the financial obligations resulting from the administration of the contract.
Payment for any obligation established by the adoption of this chapter and the contract shall be made by the Borough in accordance with the Retirement Law and the Municipal Pension Plan Funding Standard and Recovery Act. The Borough hereby assumes all liability for any unfundedness created due to the benefit structure set forth in the contract.
The Borough intends this chapter to be the complete authorization of the contract and it shall become effective and specifically repeal Ordinance No. 7-1986 either immediately or on January 1, 2014, which is the effective date of the contract, whichever is later.
A duly certified copy of this chapter and an executed contract shall be filed with the System.
