After widespread cuts made by the USPS to rural post offices, the Millport Post Office will have it's hours of operations reduced to just 4 hours, from 8 to 12 in the morning Monday through Saturday. The full time Postmaster at the Millport Office will be replaced by a part time replacement. The USPS is cutting hours at more than 13,000 post offices nationwide to save money.
