Liability of Village or commission or agency thereof in certain actions. No civil action shall be brought or maintained against the Village of Fairport or against a commission or agency thereof for damages or injuries to person or property sustained in consequence of any street, highway, bridge, culvert, sidewalk, crosswalk, highway marking, sign or device or other property owned, operated or maintained by the Village or by a commission or agency thereof, being defective, out of repair, unsafe, dangerous or obstructed or for damages or injuries to person or property sustained solely in consequence of the existence or accumulation of snow or ice upon any street, highway, bridge, culvert, sidewalk or crosswalk or other property owned, operated or maintained by the Village or by a commission or agency thereof unless written notice of the existence of such condition, relating to the particular place, had theretofore actually been given to the Clerk of the Village of Fairport and there was a failure or neglect within a reasonable time after the receipt of such notice to repair or remove the defect, danger or obstruction complained of or to cause the snow or ice to be removed or the place otherwise made reasonably safe.
