Equal Opportunity Commission", and all to read 
as follows: 

8. The Mayor and City Council of Baltimore finds 
that the population of this city is composed of 
peoples of many diverse racial, religious and other 
ethnic groups. The practice of discrimination in 
employment against members of these groups and 
the consequent failure to utilize the productive 
capacities of individuals to their fullest extent de- 
prives large segments of the population of this 
city of earnings necessary to maintain decent 
standards of living, necessitates their resort to 
public relief and intensifies racial, religious and 
ethnic intolerance thereby resulting in grave injury 
to the public health and welfare. The practice by 
divers places of public accommodation of refusing 
to accommodate and serve members of these groups 
also tends to exacerbate intergroup relations there- 
by impairing the public welfare. It is hereby de- 
clared to be the public policy of this City to foster 
the employment of all persons in accordance with 
their fullest capacities, and to accommodate and 
serve persons in divers places of public ac- 
commodation, regardless of the race, color, religion, 
ancestry or national origin of such persons. 

9. The term "person", as used in this ordinance, 
shall include an individual, partnership, corporation, 
union or association, including those acting in a 
fiduciary or representative capacity, whether ap- 
pointed by a court or otherwise. Whenever used 
in any clause prescribing and imposing a penalty, 
the term "person", as applied to partnerships, 
unions or associations, shall mean the partners or 
members thereof and as applied to corporations, 
the officers thereof. The singular shall include the 
plural and the masculine shall include the feminine 
and neuter. 

The term "employer", as used in this ordinance 
shall include every person, as hereinabove defined, 
who employs fifteen or more employees, exclusive 



ORDINANCES 33 

of parents, spouse or children of such person. The 
term, however, shall not include fraternal, sectarian, 
charitable, religious or private educational organiza- 
tions but shall include any governmental unit, 
agency or employee as to which the City has the 
power to legislate. 

The term ''labor organization" shall include any 
organization which exists for the purpose, in whole 
or in part, of collective bargaining or of dealing 
with employers concerning grievances, terms or 
conditions of employment or of other mutual aid 
or protection in relation to employment. 

The term ''employment agency" shall include 
every person, as hereinabove defined, regularly 
undertaking in this City, with or without compen- 
sation, to procure opportunities to work or to pro- 
cure, recruit, refer, or place employees. 

The term "employment" shall not include the 
employment of individuals as domestic servants nor 
the employment of individuals to serve in personal 
and confidential positions. 

The term "place of public accommodation" in- 
dues a hotel, motel, inn or restaurant, meaning 
establishments commonly known or recognized as 
regularly engaged in the business of providing 
sleeping accommodations, or serving meals, or both 
for a consideration, and which are open to the gen- 
eral public. The term "place of public accommoda- 
tion" does not apply to those establishments com- 
monly known and recognized as boarding houses 
or rooming houses, to lunch counters or refresh- 
ment stands maintained in places of recreation or 
amusement such as bowling alleys, billiard halls, or 
swimming pools. Also the term "place of public 
accommodation" does not apply to those establish- 
ments dealing in alcoholic beverages where the 
average daily receipts of the sale of alcoholic 
beverages exceeds the average daily receipts of 
the sale of food nor to that part or parts of such 
restaurant establishments which part or parts are 
primarily devoted to the sale of alcoholic beverages. 



34 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1249 

The term ''commission" means the Baltimore 
Equal Opportunity Commission created herein. 

10 A. An owner or operator of a place of public 
accommodation or an agent or employee of said 
owner or operator shall not, because of the race, 
color, creed or national origin of any person, refuse, 
withhold from, or deny to such person any of the 
accommodations, advantages, facilities and privi- 
leges of such place of public accommodation.

Board of Trustees shall adopt, each member who 
was an employee at any time during the year im- 
mediately preceding the date of establishment shall 
file a detailed statement of all service rendered by 
him prior to the date of establishment for which 
he claims credit, including all service creditable to 
him under any other pension or retirement system

more. 

(2) Subject to the above restrictions and to such 
other rules and regulations as the Board of Trustees

tified on his certificate of previous service.

but in no case shall more than one year of service 
be creditable for all service in one calendar year, 
nor shall the Board of Trustees allow credit as serv- 
ice for any period of more than one month's dura- 
tion during which the employee was absent without 
pay. 

(6) The rights and status of any person hereto- 
fore or hereafter inducted into the land or naval 
forces of the United States for training and service 
pursuant to the Act of Congress known as the Selec- 
tive Training and Service Act of 1940, or any sub- 
sequent Acts of a similar nature, and any member 
of any reserve component of the land or naval forces 
of the United States who is on active duty or service, 
or who may be ordered or assigned to active duty 
or service, and who, because of such induction or 
in order to perform such active duty or service, 
ceases to be an employee, shall be as follows in 
the Fire and Police Employees Retirement System 
of the City of Baltimore : during the period of such 
absence, no such person or his estate shall have any 
right to or be entitled to any benefit other than the 
payment of his accumulated contributions as pro- 
vided in Section 33 of this subtitle. Any such person, 
during such absence, except as herein otherwise 
specified, shall retain his status and rights as a 
member of the Fire and Police Employees Retire- 
ment System of the City of Baltimore (a) if he has

164 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1285 

is relieved from active duty, he shall receive full 
credit as service with the City for the period of 
his absence as if he had not been absent for such 
period, but such person shall produce satisfactory 
evidence to show that he meets all the requirements 
of the ordinance, but such contributions shall not 
be subject to withdrawal by any persons in the event 
of their leaving the City service and shall not be 
considered a part of the contributions of the mem- 
ber to which it is credited except in case of retire- 
ment or death while in service. The Trustees of the 
Fire and Police Employees Retirement System of 
the City of Baltimore shall refund to or reimburse 
members for any contributions which have been 
made, or shall hereafter be made, by them, or on 
their behalf to the Retirement System for the period 
of their absence while in the Armed Forces of the 
United States. The City of Baltimore shall there- 
upon make provision for paying to the Fire and 
Police Employees Retirement System of the City 
of Baltimore the amounts which each of such per- 
sons would have paid as contributions if he had not 
been absent and had been employed for the period 
of his absence at the same rate of pay as when he 
entered the military service. During the period of 
such absence of any such employee, the City of 
Baltimore shall make its contribution on behalf of 
such employee as it would have made had he not 
been absent and had retained his status as an em- 
ployee during the period of his absence. Such per- 
son, however, shall have no right to withdraw any 
part of such contribution made by the City of Balti- 
more. The Board of Trustees of the Fire and Police 
Employees Retirement System of the City of Balti- 
more is hereby authorized to adopt such rules and 
regulations to carry out the provisions of this sec- 
tion. In the event any such person who may be 
absent in such military service, or his estate, shall, 
after reinstatement in the Fire and Police Employees 
Retirement System of the City of Baltimore, file 
claim for any disability or death benefits whatsoever 
with said system, and the Medical Board of said 



ORDINANCES 165 

system shall determine that the cause or origin of 
such disability or death is in any manner, either 
directly or indirectly, attributable or due to, or may 
have arisen out of his military service, then such 
person or his estate or dependents shall not be 
entitled to any benefits other than the return of 
his accumulated contributions under said system 
and further that in the event any such person shall, 
after reinstatement, receive any disability compen- 
sation of any nature, either from the United States 
of America, any department or agency thereof, or 
from any of the States or Territories of the United 
States, or from the District of Columbia, then the 
amount of such payments so paid shall be deducted 
from any funds payable by the Fire and Police 
Employees Retirement System of the City of Balti- 
more to such person or his estate or dependents on 
account of any benefits other than the return of 
his accumulated contributions for which any claim 
has been filed.

sation for each of the first twenty-five years of 
creditable service, and one-sixtieth of his average 
final compensation for each year after the first 
twenty-five years of creditable service; and 

(d) If the member has credit for membership ser- 
vice rendered prior to July 1, 1962, an additional 
pension equal to the difference between the pension 
allowable under paragraph (b) above for such ser- 
vice and one one-hundred-twentieth of average final 
compensation multiplied by the number of years 
of such service ; 

(e) Provided, however, that if at the time of 
retirement the member has not attained the age of 
fifty, the pension and additional pension, if any, 
shall be payable at retirement and shall be the ac- 



172 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1285 

tuarial equivalent at that time of a pension and 
additional pension payable at the age of fifty in 
the amounts computed as provided in (b), (c) and 
(d) above; or such member may elect at the time 
of retirement to have his service retirement allow- 
ance deferred to commence upon the attainment of 
the age of fifty, in which event the annuity shall 
be the actuarial equivalent of his accumulated con- 
tributions at that age, and the pension or pensions 
under (b), (c) and (d) above shall be in the amounts 
computed as therein provided; 

(f ) Notwithstanding anything in this subtitle to 
the contrary, if at the time of retirement a member 
is age fifty or older, or has twenty-five years of 
service, and the total of the annuity resulting from 
the member's years of membership service and the 
supplemental pension provided by paragraph (d) 
is less than the pension resulting from the member's 
years of membership service determined in accord- 
ance with paragraph (b), a supplemental pension 
equal to such difference shall be payable. 

ORDINARY DISABILITY RETIREMENT 
BENEFIT 

(3) Upon the application of a member in service or 
of the head of his department, any member who has 
had five or more years of creditable service may 
be retired by the Board of Trustees, not less than 
thirty and not more than ninety days next following 
the date of filing such application, on an ordinary 
disability retirement allowance, provided that the 
medical board, after a medical examination of such 
member, shall certify that such member is mentally 
or physically incapacitated for the further perform- 
ance of duty, that such incapacity is likely to be 
permanent, and that such member should be retired. 

ALLOWANCE ON ORDINARY DISABILITY 
RETIREMENT 

(4) Upon retirement for ordinary disability a 
member shall receive a service retirement allowance 
if he has attained the age of fifty ; otherwise he shall 



ORDINANCES 173 

receive an ordinary disability retirement allowance 
which shall consist of: 

(a) An annuity which shall be the actuarial equiv- 
alent of his accumulated contributions at the time 
of retirement; and 

(b) A pension which, together with his annuity, 
shall provide a total retirement allowance equal to 
one-fortieth of his average final compensation for 
each of the first twenty years of creditable service, 
and one-fiftieth of his average final compensation 
for each year after the first twenty years of credit- 
able service; 

(c) Provided, however, that notwithstanding any- 
thing in this subsection to the contrary, if at the 
time of retirement a member over fifty years of 
age shall have rendered less than twenty-five years 
of creditable service, and shall be retired for ordi- 
nary disability, then and in that event, and not- 
withstanding the age of such member, he shall re- 
ceive as an ordinary disability retirement allowance 
a sum to be computed as provided in paragraphs 
(4) (a) and (b) of this subsection to the extent 
that such sum does not exceed fifty percentum 
(50%) of his average final compensation. 

SPECIAL DISABILITY BENEFIT 

(5) Upon the application of a member or the 
head of his department, any member who has been 
totally and permanently incapacitated for duty as 
the result of an injury arising out of and in the 
course of the actual performance of duty, without 
wilful negligence on his part, shall be retired by 
the Board of Trustees, provided that the medical 
board shall certify that such member is physically 
incapacitated for the further performance of duty, 
that such incapacity is likely to be permanent, and 
that such member should be retired. 

ALLOWANCE ON SPECIAL DISABILITY 
BENEFIT 

(6) Upon retirement for special disability a mem- 



174 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1285 

ber shall receive a special disability retirement al- 
lowance which shall consist of : 

(a) an annuity which shall be the actuarial equiv- 
alent of his accumulated contributions at the time 
of his retirement ; and 

(b) a pension, in addition to the annuity, of 
sixty-six and two-thirds per cent of his average 
final compensation. 

REEXAMINATION OF BENEFICIARIES 
RETIRED ON ACCOUNT OF DISABILITY 

(7) Once each year during the first five years fol- 
lowing retirement of a member on a disability re- 
tirement allowance and once in every three-year 
period thereafter, the Board of Trustees may, and 
upon his application shall, require any disability 
beneficiary who has not yet attained age fifty-five 
to undergo a medical examination, such examination 
to be made at the place of residence of said bene- 
ficiary or other place mutually agreed upon, by a 
physician or physicians designated by the Board of 
Trustees. Should any disability beneficiary who has 
not yet attained the age of fifty-five refuse to sub- 
mit to at least one medical examination in any such 
year by a physician or physicians designated by 
the Board of Trustees, his allowance may be dis- 
continued until his withdrawal of such refusal, and 
should his refusal continue for one year, all his 
rights in and to his pension may be revoked by the 
Board of Trustees. 

(a) Should the medical board report and certify 
to the Board of Trustees that such disability bene- 
ficiary is engaged in or is able to engage in a gain- 
ful occupation paying more than the difference be- 
tween his retirement allowance and the compensa- 
tion being paid currently to persons having the 
same classification that the beneficiary had at the 
time of his retirement, and should the Board of 
Trustees concur in such report, then the amount of 
his pension shall be reduced to an amount, which 



ORDINANCES 176 

together with his annuity, and the amount earnable 
by him, shall equal the amount of compensation 
being paid currently to persons having the same 
classification that the beneficiary had at the time 
of his retirement. Should his earning capacity be 
later changed, the amount of his pension may be 
further modified; provided that the new pension 
shall not exceed the amount of the pension originally 
granted nor an amount, which, when added to the 
amount earnable by the beneficiary together with 
his annuity, equals the amount of compensation 
being paid currently to persons having the same 
classification that the beneficiary had at the time 
of his retirement. A beneficiary restored to active 
service at a salary less than the average final com- 
pensation upon the basis of which he was retired 
shall not become a member of the retirement system. 

(b) Should a disability beneficiary be restored 
to active service at a compensation not less than 
the average final compensation, his retirement al- 
lowance shall cease, he shall again become a member 
of the retirement system, and he shall contribute 
thereafter at the same rate he paid prior to dis- 
ability. Any previous service credit on the basis 
of which his service was computed at the time of 
his retirement shall be restored to full force and 
effect and, in addition, upon his subsequent retire- 
ment he shall be credited with all his services as 
a member. 

ORDINARY DEATH BENEFIT 

(8) Upon the receipt of proper proofs of the death 
of a member in service there shall be paid to such 
person as he shall have nominated by written desig- 
nation duly executed and filed with the Board of 
Trustees, otherwise to his estate : 

(a) his accumulated contributions; and 

(b) if the member has one or more years of 
creditable service, an amount equal to fifty per cent 
of his current annual compensation or average final 



176 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1285 

compensation, whichever shall be greater at the 
time of the member's death; 

(c) provided, however, that if the member was 
eligible for a service retirement allowance at the 
time of his death, and if the person designated by 
the member as his beneficiary under this subsection 
is (i) his surviving parent or (ii) his surviving 
spouse with whom he had been living for at least 
five years at the time of his death, such beneficiary 
may elect to receive in lieu of (a) and (b) above, 
an allowance equal to that which would have been 
paid to such beneficiary under Option 3 of sub- 
section (11) (a) hereof, had the member elected 
Option 3 in favor of such beneficiary and retired as 
of the date of death. To receive this alternative 
death benefit, the designated parent or spouse must 
make written application therefor not later than 
sixty days after the death of the member on forms 
provided by the Board of Trustees. The payment 
of the alternative allowance described in this para- 
graph shall be provided for, to the extent not pro- 
vided for elsev/here in this subtitle for the payment 
of (a) and (b) above, in its annual Ordinance of 
Estimates by the Mayor and City Council of Balti- 
more; and annual payments shall be made by the 
Mayor and City Council of Baltimore to the Retire- 
ment System of the additional amounts required 
to meet the current disbursements for such alterna- 
tive allowances. 

No ordinary death benefit shall be paid for the 
death of any member whenever a special death 
benefit shall be paid for same. 

SPECIAL DEATH BENEFIT 

(9) Upon the receipt of proper proofs of the 
death of a member in service arising out of and in 
the course of the actual performance of duty, with- 
out wilful negligence on his part, and upon certifica- 
tion by the Board that such death so occurred, there 
shall be paid : 



ORDINANCES 177 

(a) To such person as he shall have nominated 
by written designation duly executed and filed with 
the Board of Trustees, otherwise to his estate, his 
accumulated contributions ; and in addition thereto, 
a pension of one hundred per centum of the current 
compensation of such employee ; 

(b) To his widow to continue during her widow- 
hood; or 

(c) If there be no widow, or if the widow dies 
or remarries before the youngest child of such de- 
ceased member shall have attained the age of eight- 
een years, then to his child or children under said 
age, divided in such manner as the Board of Trustees 
in its discretion shall determine, to continue as a 
joint and survivorship pension for the benefit of 
the child or children under such age until every 
child dies or attains said age ; or 

(d) If there be no widow or child under the age 
of eighteen years surviving such deceased member, 
then to his dependent father or dependent mother, 
as the deceased member shall have nominated by 
written designation, duly acknowledged and filed 
with the Board of Trustees, or if there be no such 
nomination, then to his dependent father or to his 
dependent mother as the Board of Trustees in its 
discretion shall direct, to continue for life; or 

(e) If no beneficiary has been designated, and 
if a member dies intestate and without heirs, then 
the amounts which would have been paid out under 
the provisions of paragraphs (8) or (9) shall re- 
main part of the funds of the system, and shall be 
credited to such accounts as the Board of Trustees 
may direct. 

Of the total amount to be paid under this para- 
graph, fifty per cent (50%) of the average final 
compensation of such employee shall be paid by 
the Board of Trustees of the Fire and Police Em- 
ployees Retirement System of the City of Baltimore 
and the balance of said amount shall be paid out 
of the Workmen's Compensation Liability Fund, 
as contained in the annual Ordinance of Estimates. 



178 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1285 

RETURN OF ACCUMULATED 
CONTRIBUTIONS 

(10) Should a member cease to be an employee 
except by death or retirement under the provisions 
of this subtitle, he shall be paid such part of the 
amount of the accumulated contributions standing 
to the credit of his individual account in the Annuity 
Savings Fund as he shall demand; provided, how- 
ever, that the Board of Trustees may, in its dis- 
cretion, withhold for not more than one year after 
a member has ceased to be an employee all or part 
of his accumulated contributions, if after a previous 
discontinuance of service he withdrew from the An- 
nuity Savings Fund all or part of the amount of 
his accumulated contributions and failed to rede- 
posit such withdrawn amount in such fund. 

OPTIONAL ALLOWANCES 

(11) (a) In lieu of the disability or service 
allowances payable under the aforesaid provisions, 
any member may, within thirty days after the effec- 
tive date of retirement, elect a reduced retirement 
allowance of equivalent actuarial value in one of 
the optional forms set out below. The election of 
the option shall be made on a form provided for 
that purpose and shall be filed with the Board of 
Trustees. A member who has elected an optional 
benefit may change such election by due notice to 
the Board of Trustees, but no change may be made 
after the first payment of his allowance becomes 
normally due. 

Option 1. If the member dies before he has re- 
ceived in annuity payments the present value of his 
annuity computed as of the time of his retirement, 
the balance of the annuity reserve remaining unpaid 
shall be paid to such person, if any, as he shall have 
nominated by written designation duly acknowledged 
and filed with the Board of Trustees, otherwise to his 
estate; or 

Option 2. If the member dies before he has re- 
ceived in payments the present value of his retire- 



ORDINANCES 179 

ment allowance as it was at the time of his retire- 
ment, the balance shall be paid to his legal repre- 
sentatives or to such person as he shall nominate 
by written designation duly acknowledged and filed 
with the Board of Trustees ; or 

Option 3. Upon the member's death, his reduced 
retirement allowances shall be continued throughout 
the life of and paid to such person as he shall have 
nominated by written designation duly acknowledged 
and filed with the Board of Trustees at the time of 
his retirement; or 

Option 4. Upon the member's death, one-half 
of his reduced retirement allowance shall be con- 
tinued throughout the life of and paid to such person 
as he shall have nominated by written designation 
duly acknowledged and filed with the Board ol 
Trustees at the time of his retirement; or 

Option 5. Some other benefit or benefits shall be 
paid either to the member or to such person or per- 
sons as he shall have nominated, provided such other 
benefit or benefits, together with the lesser retire- 
ment allowance, shall be certified by the actuary to 
be of equivalent actuarial value to his retirement 
allowance and shall be approved by the Board of 
Trustees. 

(b) Notwithstanding anjrthing to the contrary in 
this sub-title, should a member be removed from a 
regular permanent position of the City without fault 
upon his part, or should a member appointed or 
elected for a fixed term not be reappointed or re- 
elected, after the completion of fifteen years of 
creditable service and the attainment of age forty- 
five, or after the completion of twenty years of 
creditable service regardless of age, such member 
may elect, in lieu of the withdrawal of his accumu- 
lated contributions, to have such contributions paid 
to him in an annuity of equivalent actuarial value, 
in which event he shall also be paid a pension equal 
to the ordinary disability pension that would have 



180 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1285 

been payable at such time had he been retired on an 
ordinary disabiHty retirement. 

The Board of Estimates of the Mayor and City 
Council of Baltimore shall provide for and pay to the 
Retirement System for the purpose of paying such 
pensions the additional amount so required. The 
payment of all such pensions and the continued pay- 
ment of such pensions shall be contingent on the 
payment annually by the Mayor and City Council of 
Baltimore of the additional amount so required to 
meet the current disbursement of such pensions. 
Should such a beneficiary be restored to active serv- 
ice, his retirement allowance shall cease, he shall 
again become a member of the Retirement System, 
and he shall contribute thereafter at the same rate 
he paid prior to his retirement; provided, however, 
that should such beneficiary be appointed or elected 
to any office, the salary or compensation of which is 
paid by the City, his retirement allowance shall 
cease, and he may again become a member of the 
Retirement System and shall contribute thereafter 
at the same rate he paid prior to his retirement. Any 
prior service certificate on the basis of which his 
service was computed at the time of his retirement 
shall be restored to full force and effect and, in addi- 
tion, upon his subsequent retirement he shall be cred- 
ited with all his service as a member, provided his 
pension upon such subsequent retirement shall not 
exceed the pension he was receiving prior to restora- 
tion plus such pension as may have accrued on ac- 
count of his membership service after restoration. 

MANAGEMENT OF FUNDS 

34. (1) The Board of Trustees shall be the trus- 
tees of the several funds created by this subtitle as 
provided in Section 35, and shall have full power to 
invest and reinvest such funds in bonds or notes, 
secured by the faith and credit of the United States 
or of the following agencies of the United States: 
Federal Intermediate Credit Bank, Federal Land 
Bank, Federal Home Loan Bank, Federal National 
Mortersge Association and Banks for Cooperatives; 



ORDINANCES 181 

or in coin or treasury notes of the United States, or 
in corporate bonds having an investment rating not 
lower than those commonly referred to as AA or 
AAA, or in interest-paying or dividend-paying bonds 
or stock secured by the faith and credit of this State 
or of any other State of the Union, or of Baltimore 
City, or of any of the several Counties of this State, 
having legal authority to issue the same, and not in 
default. Subject to the terms, conditions, limitations 
and restrictions imposed by the law of Maryland 
upon life insurance companies in the making and dis- 
posing of their investments, as herein qualified, 
limited and restricted by the provisions of this sec- 
tion, said trustees shall have full power to hold, 
purchase, sell, assign, transfer and dispose of any 
of the securities and investments in which any of 
the funds created herein shall have been invested, as 
well as the proceeds of said investments and any 
moneys- belonging to said funds. 

(2) The Board of Trustees annually shall allow 
regular interest on the mean amount for the pre- 
ceding year in each of the funds with the exception 
of the Expense Fund. The amounts so allowed shall 
be due and payable to said funds, and shall be annu- 
ally credited thereto by the Board of Trustees from 
interest and other earnings on the moneys of the re- 
tirement system. Any additional amount required 
to meet the interest on the funds of the retirement 
system shall be paid by the City of Baltimore and 
any excess of earnings over such amount required 
shall be deductible from the amounts to be contrib- 
uted by the City of Baltimore. 

(3) The City Treasurer of the City of Baltimore 
shall be the custodian of the several funds. All pay- 
ments from said funds shall be made by him only 
upon vouchers signed by two persons designated by 
the Board of Trustees. A duly attested copy of a 
resolution of the Board of Trustees designating 
such persons and bearing upon its face specimen 
sijomatures of such persons shall be filed with the 
Citv Treasurer as his authority for making pay- 



182 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1285 

ments upon such vouchers. No voucher shall be 
drawn unless it shall have been previously authorized 
by resolution of the Board of Trustees. 

(4) For the purpose of meeting disbursements 
for pensions, annuities, and other payments there 
may be kept available cash, not exceeding ten per 
centum of the total amount in the several funds of 
the retirement system, on deposit in one or more 
banks or trust companies of the City of Baltimore, 
organized under the laws of the State of Maryland 
or of the United States, provided that the sum on 
deposit in any one bank or trust company shall not 
exceed twenty-five per centum of the paid-up capital 
and surplus of such bank or trust company. 

(5) Except as otherwise herein provided, no trus- 
tee and no employee of the Board of Trustees shall 
have any direct interest in the gains or profits of 
any investment made by the Board of Trustees, nor 
as such receive any pay or emolument for his serv- 
ices. No trustee or employee of the Board shall, di- 
rectly or indirectly, for himself or as an agent in 
any manner use the same, except to make such cur- 
rent and necessary payments as are authorized by 
the Board of Trustees ; nor shall any trustee or em- 
ployee of the Board of Trustees become an endorser 
or surety or in any manner an obligor for moneys 
loaned by or borrowed from the Board of Trustees. 

METHOD OF FINANCING 

35. All of the assets of the retirement system shall 
be credited according to the purpose for which they 
are held to one of five funds, namely, the Annuity 
Savings Fund, the Annuity Reserve Fund, the Pen- 
sion Accumulation Fund, the Pension Reserve Fund, 
and the Expense Fund. 

ANNUITY SAVINGS FUND 

(1) (a) The Annuity Savings Fund shall be a fund 
in which shall be accumulated contributions from the 
compensation of members to provide for their an- 



ORDINANCES 183 

nuities. Upon the basis of such tables as the Board 
of Trustees shall adopt and regular interest, the actu- 
ary of the retirement system shall determine for 
each member the proportion of compensation which, 
when deducted from each payment of his prospective 
earnable annual compensation prior to his attain- 
ment of age fifty and accumulated at regular interest 
until his attainment of such age shall be computed 
to provide at the time an annuity equal to the pen- 
sion to which he will be entitled at that age on ac- 
count of his service as a member. Such proportion 
of compensation shall be computed to remain con- 
stant. 

(b) The proportion so computed for a member 
age forty-nine shall be applied to a member who 
attains a greater age before he becomes a member 
of the retirement system. The Board of Trustees 
shall certify to the head of each department and the 
head of each department shall cause to be deducted 
from the salary of each member on each and every 
payroll of such department for each and every pay- 
roll period the proportion of earnable compensation 
of each member so computed. But the head of any 
department shall not make any deduction for annuity 
purposes from the compensation of a member who 
elects not to contribute if he has attained age fifty 
and has completed twenty-five years of service. In 
determining the amount earnable by a member in a 
payroll period, the Board of Trustees may consider 
the rate of annual compensation payable to such 
member on the first day of the payroll period as 
continuing throughout such payroll period, and it 
may omit deduction from compensation for any 
period less than a full payroll period if an em- 
ployee was not a member on the first day of the 
payroll period, and to facilitate the making of de- 
ductions it may modify the deduction required of 
any member by such an amount as shall not ex- 
ceed one-tenth of one per centum of the annual 
compensation upon the basis of which such deduc- 
tion is to be made. 



184 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1285 

(c) The deductions provided for herein shall be 
made notwithstanding that the minimum compensa- 
tion provided for by law for any member shall be 
reduced thereby. Every member shall be deemed to 
consent and agree to the deductions made and pro- 
vided for herein and shall receipt for his full salary 
or compensation, and payment of salary or compen- 
sation less said deduction shall be a full and com- 
plete discharge and acquittance of all claims and 
demands whatsoever for the services rendered by 
such person during the period covered by such pay- 
ment, except as to the benefits provided under this 
subtitle. The head of each department shall certify 
to the Board of Trustees on each and every payroll 
the amounts to be deducted ; and each of said amounts 
shall be deducted, and when deducted shall be paid 
into said Annuity Savings Fund, and shall be credit- 
ed, together with regular interest thereon, to the in- 
dividual account of the member from whose compen- 
sation said deduction was made. 

( d) In addition to the contributions deducted from 
compensation as hereinbefore provided, subject 
to the approval of the Board of Trustees, any mem- 
ber may redeposit in the Annuity Savings Fund by 
a single payment or by an increased rate of contri- 
butions an amount equal to the total amount which 
he previously withdrew therefrom as provided in 
this subtitle, or any part thereof; or any member 
may deposit therein by a single payment or by an 
increased rate of contribution an amount computed 
to be sufficient to purchase an additional annuity, 
which, together with his prospective retirement 
allowance, will provide for him a total retirement 
allowance not in excess of two-thirds of his average 
final compensation at age fifty years of creditable 
service, whichever would first occur. Such addi- 
tional amounts so deposited shall become a part of 
his accumulated contributions except in the case of 
disability retirement, when that shall be treated as 
excess contributions returnable to the member in 
cash or as an annuity of equivalent actuarial value. 
The accumulated contributions of a member with- 



ORDINANCES 185 

drawn by him, or paid to his estate or to his desig- 
nated beneficiary in event of his death as provided 
in this subtitle, shall be paid from the Annuity Sav- 
ings Fund. Upon retirement of a member his ac- 
cumulated contributions shall be transferred from 
the Annuity Savings Fund to the Annuity Reserve 
Fund. 

ANNUITY RESERVE FUND 

(2) The Annuity Reserve Fund shall be the fund 
from which shall be paid all annuities and all benefits 
in lieu of annuities, payable as provided in this sub- 
title. Should a beneficiary retired on account of dis- 
ability be restored to active service with a compen- 
sation not less than his average final compensation 
at the time of his last retirement his annuity reserve 
shall be transferred from the Annuity Reserve Fund 
to the Annuity Savings Fund and credited to his 
individual account therein. 

PENSION ACCUMULATION FUND 

(3) (a) The Pension Accumulation Fund shall 
be the fund in which shall be accumulated all re- 
serves for the payment of all pensions and other 
benefits payable from contributions made by the City 
of Baltimore and from which shall be paid all pen- 
sions and other benefits on account of members with 
prior service credit and lump sum death benefits for 
all members payable from the said contributions. 
Contributions to and payments from the Pension Ac- 
cumulation Fund shall be made as follows: 

(b) On account of each member there shall be 
paid annually into the Pension Accumulation Fund 
by the City of Baltimore, for the preceding fiscal 
year, a certain percentage of the earnable compen- 
sation of each member to be known as the ''normal 
contribution", and an additional percentage of his 
earnable compensation to be known as the "accrued 
liability contribution". The rates per centum of such 
contributions shall be fixed on the basis of the liabil- 



186 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 1285 

ities of the retirement system as shown by actuarial 
valuation. 

(c) On the basis of regular interest and of such 
mortality and other tables as shall be adopted by the 
Board of Trustees, the actuary engaged by the Board 
to make each valuation required by this subtitle dur- 
ing the period over which the deficiency contribution 
is payable, immediately after making such valuation, 
shall determine the uniform and constant percentage 
of the earnable compensation of the average new 
entrant, which, if contributed on the basis of com- 
pensation of such new entrant throughout his entire 
period of active service would be sufficient to provide 
for the payment of any death benefit or pension pay- 
able on his account. The rate per centum so deter- 
mined shall be known as the "normal contribution" 
rate. After the accrued liability contribution has 
ceased to be payable, the normal contribution rate 
shall be the rate per centum of the earnable salary 
of all members obtained by deducting from the total 
liabilities of the Pension Accumulation Fund the 
amount of the funds in hand to the credit of that 
fund and dividing the remainder by one per centum 
of the present value of the prospective future sala- 
ries of all members as computed on the basis of the 
mortality and service tables adopted by the Board 
of Trustees and regular interest. The normal rate 
of contribution shall be determined by the actuary 
after each valuation. 

(d) Immediately succeeding the initial valuation, 
the actuary engaged by the Board of Trustees shall 
compute the rate per centum of the total annual 
compensation of all members which is equivalent to 
five per centum of the amount of the total pension 
and death benefit liability on account of all members 
and beneficiaries which is not dischargeable by the 
funds in hand and the aforesaid normal contribution 
made on account of such members during the re- 
mainder of their active service. The rate per centum 
so determined shall be known as the "accrued lia- 
bility contribution rate". 



ORDINANCES 187 

(e) The total amount payable in each year to the 
Pension Accumulation Fund shall be not less than 
the sum of the rates per centum known as the normal 
contribution rate and the accrued liability contribu- 
tion rate of the total compensation earnable by all 
members during the preceding year ; provided, how- 
ever, that the amount of each annual accrued liability 
contribution shall be at least three per centum 
greater than the preceding annual accrued liability 
payment, and that the aggregate payment by the 
City of Baltimore shall be sufficient, when combined 
with the amount in the fund to provide the pensions 
and other benefits payable out of the fund during 
the year then current. 

(f ) The accrued liability contribution shall be dis- 
continued as soon as the accumulated reserve in the 
Pension Accumulation Fund shall equal the present 
value, as actuarially computed and approved by the

of ground 20 feet wide with a length of 49.43 feet 
in Baltimore City distant 100 feet north of North 
Avenue and distant 368.89 feet westerly from 
the southwest side of Druid Hill Avenue. 

Whereas, The City Solicitor of Baltimore City 
has ruled that the fee simple title to that area of 
ground 20 feet wide, situate on the south side of 
a former 20-foot wide alley, distant 368.89 feet 
west from the southwest side of Druid Hill Avenue,

tangular depth northerly of 20 feet to the north
