MEMORANDUM OF DECISION


The plaintiff instituted the present action, in a three count complaint, seeking to recover damages for personal injuries claimed to have been sustained when she fell in a municipal parking lot. Defendants have moved to strike the first count of the complaint on the grounds that maintenance and management of a municipal parking lot is a governmental act from which the defendants are immune from liability.

Whether the maintenance of a municipal parking lot is a governmental or proprietary function is, at least, a question of fact. See, Doran v. Waterbury Parking Authority, 35 Conn. Sup. 280 (1979) (Wall, J.).

Accordingly, the motion to strike the first count of the complaint is denied.
