§ 6-628. Liability of village in certain actions. No civil action shall be maintained against the village 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 for damages or injuries to person or property sustained solely in consequence of the existence of snow or ice upon any sidewalk, crosswalk, street, highway, bridge or culvert, unless written notice of the defective, unsafe, dangerous or obstructed condition or of the existence of the snow or ice, relating to the particular place, was actually given to the Village Clerk 30 days prior to the date when any cause of action arose against the said village by reason of the foregoing conditions, 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. Further, the village shall not be liable for damages or injuries to person or property by reason of the foregoing conditions unless a claim meeting the requirements of § 50-e of the General Municipal Law shall, within 30 days after happening of the accident or injury or occurrence of the act, omission, fault or neglect out of which or on account of which the claim arose, be served upon the Village Clerk and notice of intention to commence an action thereon be served upon the Village Attorney.
