TOLEDO -- Just like her school bus, a Toledo girl's actual bus stop is on the move. She now gets picked up more than two blocks from where the stop used to be.

The reason? A pole.

The little girl's grandmother wants it removed, so she's turning to Problem Solver Mika Highsmith. Cheryl Cunningham told News 11, "That's kind of a distance for an eight year old."

It's two and a half blocks from where it used to stop on Walbridge. The bus driver changed the route because he couldn't navigate the bus between two poles.

One pole doesn't have any wires on it, and Cunningham hopes to get it taken out opening the space up so this bus can continue on its normal route.

The city said they wouldn't see a problem with it coming down. The problem was finding who owned it -- Edison or AT&T.

Cunningham never heard back on the issue.

After calling Toledo Edison and AT&T, Problem Solver Highsmith learned it appears the city hasn't even looked in to it. Neither company had any knowledge of the situation. Toledo Edison went out and found that it's not theirs. AT&T also went out Wednesday, February 20 and could not find any identification on the pole, but they've agreed to take it down. It could happen as soon as Thursday.
