§

3643. Neglect; proceedings

When a person or

corporation owning or operating a railroad does not construct and maintain a

fence as required by this chapter, any person aggrieved may construct it. The

selectboard members of the town in which the same is located shall appraise the

value thereof, and the person or railroad corporation shall pay the amount so

awarded by the selectboard members to the person so aggrieved. On failure of

the person or corporation to pay the amount so awarded, the person so constructing

such fence may recover the same in an action on this statute. Such a person or

railroad corporation shall not be required to build such fence while the ground

is frozen. (Amended 2013, No. 161 (Adj. Sess.), § 72.)
