Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1.  Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of section 15-103 of the administrative code of the city of New York, no person shall be disqualified from membership in the fire department on the basis of exceeding the otherwise applicable maximum age requirement for the first open competitive examination for firefighter, or the first promotion examination for firefighter in the case of persons eligible to take such examination, given after the effective date of this local law if he or she has not passed his or her thirty-sixth birthday on the date of  filing his or her application for the first open competitive examination for firefighter, or the first promotion examination for firefighter in the case of persons eligible to take such examination, given after the effective date of this local law and he or she either (i) could not be appointed from an eligible list for the position of firefighter, including but not limited to a special military eligible list, established before the effective date of this local law because such list could not be used in whole or in part by the fire department due to litigation or (ii) took a civil service examination for the position of firefighter in the five years preceding the effective date of this local law.  No person who qualifies under this local law shall be disqualified from membership in the department on the basis of exceeding such maximum age requirement because of having passed his or her thirty-sixth birthday subsequent to the filing of his or her application.  
ยง 2.  This local law shall take effect immediately.
