In no event shall the city be liable in damages to any person for any injury to person or property caused by a defect or dangerous place in a sidewalk, crosswalk, street, alley, sewer, public ground, public building, drain, gutter, ditch, or way, unless the city has had actual notice prior to the injury that the defect or dangerous place existed and has had a reasonable time thereafter in which to repair or remove it. In no case shall more than $500 be recovered as damages for an injury resulting from such a defect or dangerous place.

But in no event shall the action be started until 30 days have elapsed after the presentation of this notice to the council.
All ordinances of the city consistent with this charter and in force when it takes effect shall remain in effect until amended or repealed.
All charter provisions of the city enacted prior to the time that this charter takes effect are hereby repealed.
