Post office closure could mean a Clermont Co. village will cease to exist
NEVILLE, Ohio (WXIX) – A village in Clermont County has lost its post office, and the whole village could be next.
The Neville Post Office previously leased the ground floor space in a building on Main Street.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration temporarily closed the location in November 2021 due to serious health and safety issues, according to the post office operations manager. Cecil Collins, former Neville mayor, said last month the ceilings leaked urine from the pets of the upstairs tenants.
The building is “falling apart,” said Neville Vice Mayor Cory Spears.
OSHA said it would reopen when once repairs were made. But that never happened, and on Friday, USPS confirmed the location’s lease has been terminated.
“It’s depressing, were going to lose the village if we don’t have this post office service come back,” said Cory Spears.
The United States Postal Service terminated the Neville Post Office lease.
