Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 13a-149 of the General Statutes, or any other general statute, special act or ordinance, the Town of Stratford shall not be liable to any person injured in person or property caused by the presence of ice or snow on a public sidewalk unless said Town is the owner or person in possession and control of land abutting such sidewalk, other than land used as a highway or street, provided that said Town shall be liable for its affirmative acts with respect to such 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 prior to the effective date of this article and shall be liable to persons injured in person or property where a breach of said duty is the proximate cause of said injury.
