3. Unused accumulated sick leave certified by the Department of Personnel pursuant to subsection (1) hereof shall allow a Member to vest in the Firemen's Retirement system by using such unused accumulated sick leave as certified by the Department of Personnel to reach the time of vesting and shall also allow a Member to exceed a seventy-five percent service retirement allowance by adding unused accumulated sick leave certified by the Department of Personnel pursuant to subsection (1) hereof to no more than thirty years of creditable service or a Member who is participating in a DROP program may elect upon retirement to have placed in his or her DROP account a dollar amount equal to his or her unused accumulated sick leave hours, as certified by the Department of Personnel pursuant to subsection (1) hereof , multiplied by his or her hourly rate of pay at the time of retirement, or to place one-half of this dollar amount in the Member's DROP account, have one-fourth of the dollar amount added to the Member's average final compensation, and to have the remaining one-fourth of this dollar amount remain as time and added to the Member's creditable service.

SECTION THREE. Emergency Clause. This being an ordinance necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety, it is hereby declared to be an emergency ordinance under Article IV, Sections 19 and 20 of the Charter of the City of St. Louis, and it shall take effect and be in full force immediately upon its passage and approval by the Mayor or its adoption over his veto.
