BRONWOOD, GA (WALB) -

Bronwood City officials hope to cover up several ditches that pose a major threat, especially to kids when they fill up with water.

The city manager says they recently applied for a community block development grant due to issues with water lines and drainage ditches.

The ditches are located in populated neighborhoods with plenty of kids. They're deep and sometimes they're havens for moccasins.

"What we hope to do if we get the grant is put a grate system in and curb and gutter the streets to make it safer for the children," said Davina Davila.

Wednesday, council members will hold a special meeting to pick an engineer for the project.

The grant can be anywhere from $300 to $500,000.
