FISCAL NOTE. - This bill would deem Joan E. Rasmussen, an employee of the Town of Brunswick, to have become a Tier 1 member of the New York State and Local Employees' Retirement System on June 30, 1973.
If this bill is enacted, we anticipate that there will be an increase of approximately $1,100 in the annual contributions of the Town of Brunswick for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1993. Further, as a percentage of pay, the annual employer contributions
for this benefit will
payable for eventually approach 5.8% of Joan E. Rasmussen's annual salary.
In addition to the annual contributions discussed above, there will be an immediate past billing cost of approximately $22,000 which would be borne by the Town of Brunswick as a one-time payment.
