Section 341-a of the Village Law, as added thereto by Chapter 650 of
the Laws of 1927, as it applies to the Village of Hastings-on-Hudson, is hereby
amended to read as follows:
§ 341-a. Liability of village in certain actions.
No civil action shall be brought or maintained
against the Village of Hastings-on-Hudson 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 Board of Trustees of the Village
of Hastings-on-Hudson, 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 Hastings-on-Hudson.
