Section 65. §s and regulations  

Latest version.
  • 1. The board of supervisors shall by
      local law adopt rules and regulations not inconsistent with law for  the
      fair  and equitable administration and operation of the plan. Such rules
      and regulations may provide standards and conditions with  respect,  but
      not  limited,  to  (a) entry and withdrawal of participants, (b) medical
      examinations, (c) safety programs, (d) reports by participants  and  (e)
      cooperation  by  participants,  provided,  however,  that such rules and
      regulations, or failure to adopt the same, shall not prevent  withdrawal
      of  a participant from the plan upon the condition that such participant
      shall pay, in a lump sum or in installments, an equitable share  of  the
      outstanding  liabilities  of  the plan as of the date of withdrawal. Any
      payments required upon entry  to  or  withdrawal  from  a  plan  may  be
      financed,  in whole or in part, by any municipal corporation or district
      corporation by the issuance of bonds or capital notes  pursuant  to  the
      local finance law.
        2.  Such rules and regulations may also provide that for any violation
      thereof or of this chapter, a participant may be expelled from the  plan
      or be charged with a penalty. Any such penalty shall be collected at the
      same  time  and in the same manner as other charges against participants
      as provided in section sixty-seven of this chapter,  or  in  such  other
      manner  as  may be provided in such rules and regulations. A participant
      liable for the payment of a penalty may by action of its governing  body
      elect  to recover the amount thereof from the public officer or employee
      whose act or failure to act resulted in the imposition of such  penalty.
      In such event, the amount of the penalty may be withheld from the salary
      or other remuneration payable to such officer or employee.
