Section 6-628 of the Village Law, as it applies to the Village of Spencerport, New York, is hereby amended to read as follows:
§ 6-628. Liability of Village in certain actions.
No civil action shall be brought or maintained against the Village of Spencerport for damages or injuries to person or property sustained in consequence of any street, highway, bridge, culvert, sidewalk or crosswalk being defective, out of repair, unsafe, dangerous or obstructed, or in consequence of the existence or accumulation of snow or ice upon any street, highway, bridge, culvert, sidewalk or crosswalk, unless written notice of the existence of such condition, relating to the particular place, had theretofore actually been given to the Village Clerk of the Village of Spencerport, New York, and there had been a failure or neglect on the part of said Village to cause such condition to be corrected or such snow or ice to be removed or the place otherwise made reasonably safe within a reasonable time after the receipt of such notice.
Nothing herein contained, however, shall be held to revive any claim or cause of action now barred by any existing requirement or statute of limitations nor to waive any existing limitation now applicable to any claim or cause of action against the Village of Spencerport, New York.
The Village Clerk shall keep an indexed record of all written notices which he shall receive of the existence of a defective, unsafe, dangerous or obstructed condition in or upon, or of an accumulation of ice or snow upon, any Village street, highway, bridge, culvert, sidewalk or crosswalk, which record shall state the date of receipt of the notice, the nature and location of the condition stated to exist, and the name and address of the person from whom the notice is received. All such written notices shall be indexed according to the location of the alleged defective, unsafe, dangerous or obstructed condition, or the location of accumulated snow or ice. He shall at the Board meeting next following receipt of such written notice by him, or within 10 days, whichever is sooner, cause said written notice to be brought to the attention of the Board of Trustees. The record of each notice shall be preserved for a period of five years after the date it is received.
