Student safety is on Tuesday’s City Council agenda, with Councilor William J. Macek intending to discuss what he calls the “poor quality” of the walkways along Haverhill’s Concord Street.

According to an agenda item, Macek—who lives on Concord Street—plans to raise the issue of “unsafe” sidewalks near John Greenleaf Whittier Middle School used by students and others in the neighborhood.

Other items up for discussion during tonight’s 7 p.m. meeting include emergency repairs and repaving on Fletcher Avenue—brought forth at the request of President John A. Michitson and Council Vice President Thomas J. Sullivan—and the revision of a special permit for housing at 10 Reed St.
