    §  50-b.  Municipal  liability  for negligent operation of vehicles or
  other facility of transportation. 1. Every county, city,  town,  village
  and  other  subdivision  of government, notwithstanding any inconsistent
  provisions of law, general, special or local or any limitation contained
  in the provision of any city charter, shall be liable and  shall  assume
  the  liability  for the negligence of, and shall save harmless, a person
  duly appointed by the governing board or body of the municipality, or by
  any board, body, commission or other officer thereof, in  the  operation
  of  a  municipally  owned  vehicle  or  other facility of transportation
  within the state in the discharge of a statutory duty imposed upon  such
  person  or  municipality,  provided  the  appointee  at  the time of the
  accident or injury was acting in the discharge of his duties and  within
  the scope of his employment. Every such appointee shall, for the purpose
  of   this   section,   be   deemed  an  employee  of  the  municipality,

  being  operated in the discharge of a public duty for the benefit of all
  citizens of the  community  and  the  municipality  derived  no  special
  benefit in its corporate capacity.
    2.  The  provisions of this section shall not apply to the city of New
