It may seem like a little thing, but a forgotten broken utility pole is turning into a never ending nuisance for neighbors.

Neighbors tell 7 Action News they’ve made calls to various companies, and city departments, but the pole remained. It appears nobody wanted to take responsibility for leaving it behind.
