(1) Any city located in a county containing a consolidated local government or a city of the first class which is reclassified as a city of the second class after March 16, <br>2000, shall be exempt from the provisions of KRS 90.300 to 90.400, 95.430 to <br>95.500, and 95.851 to 95.991 relating to the organization and structure of civil <br>service systems, police departments, fire departments, and pension systems in cities <br>of the second class. (2) In lieu of the requirements of these statutes, any city reclassified as a city of the second class shall ensure that police and fire protection services are provided for the <br>citizens of the city in the same manner and at least at the same level of service as <br>was being provided prior to the reclassification. (3) Nothing in this section shall prevent a city from restructuring or creating a new civil service system, police department, or fire department after a reclassification to a city <br>of the second class. Any city that restructures or creates a new civil service system, <br>police department, or fire department may adopt any of the provisions of KRS <br>90.300 to 90.400, 95.430 to 95.500, and 95.851 to 95.991 relating to the <br>organization and structure of civil service systems, police departments, fire <br>departments, and pension systems in cities of the second class. (4) If fire protection service is being provided by a fire protection district in any city that is reclassified as a city of the second class, the reclassification shall in no way <br>affect the operations of the fire protection district and the services it provides. If at <br>any time after a city is reclassified as a city of the second class, the fire protection <br>district ceases to exist or fails to adequately provide for the fire protection needs of <br>the city, the city shall have the right to create its own fire department or secure some <br>other means for the provision of adequate fire protection services.
