(2) for the Bloomington Fire Department Relief Association, any unfunded actuarial accrued liability must be amortized on a level dollar basis by December 31 of the year occurring 20 years after the year in which the unfunded actuarial accrued liability initially occurred, and, if subsequent actuarial valuations for the Bloomington Fire Department Relief Association indicate a net actuarial experience loss incurred during the year which ended as of the day before the most recent actuarial valuation date, any unfunded actuarial accrued liability due to that loss is to be amortized on a level dollar basis by December 31 of the year occurring 20 years after the year in which the net actuarial experience loss occurred;
