§ 260.20  PICK UP OF CONTRIBUTIONS TO PUBLIC EMPLOYEES RETIREMENT SYSTEM OF OHIO.
   (a)   (1)   Subject to subsection (b) of this section, the full amount of the statutorily required contribution to the Public Employees Retirement System of Ohio (PERS) shall be withheld from the gross pay of each person within the classes established in subsection (b) of this section and shall be "picked up" (assumed and paid to the PERS of Ohio) by the City.  This pick-up by the City is, and shall be designated as, public employee contributions and shall be in lieu of contributions to the PERS by each person within the classes established in subsection (b) of this section.  No person subject to this pick up shall have the option of choosing to receive the statutorily required contribution to the PERS directly instead of having it picked up by the City or of being excluded from the pick up.
      (2)   The City shall, in reporting and making remittance to the PERS, report that the public employee's contribution for each person subject to this pick up has been made as provided by statute.
   (b)   The pick up by the City, as provided by this section, shall apply to all persons designated in 260.22(a).
   (c)   The gross wage or salary of any person subject to the pick up provided for in this section shall not change as a result of this pick up.
   (d)  The Finance Director is hereby directed to implement this section to effect the pick up of the statutorily required contributions to the PERS for those persons within the classes established in subsection (b) of this section so as to enable them to obtain the resulting federal and state tax deferments.
