[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Meeting of the Town of East Granby 2-22-2005 (Ch. XXXII of the 1975 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
Roads and highways — See Ch. 235.
The Town hereby adopts the provisions of C.G.S. § 7-163a.
The Town shall not be liable to any person injured in person or property caused by the presence of ice or snow on a public sidewalk not abutting land in the ownership of or possession and control of the Town (other than land used as a highway or street).
Nothing in this chapter is intended to relieve the Town from any liability for its affirmative acts with respect to any public sidewalk.
The owner or person in possession and control of land abutting a public sidewalk shall have the same duty of care with respect to the presence of ice or snow on such sidewalk toward the portion of the sidewalk abutting his property as the Town had or would have had prior to the effective date of this chapter and shall be liable to persons injured in person or property where a breach of said duty is proximate cause of said injury.
No action to recover damages for injury to the person or to property caused by the presence of ice and snow on a public sidewalk against a person (including the Town) who owns or is in possession and control of land abutting a public sidewalk shall be brought but within two years from the date when the injury is first sustained.
Nothing in this chapter is intended to waive any notice requirement otherwise imposed by law before any claim can be asserted against the Town.
