Toledo reminds public of Juneteenth closures

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – The City of Toledo is reminding the public of Juneteenth closures.

City offices and the Department of Public Utilities walk-in will be closed on Wednesday, June 19 in observance of Juneteenth, a federal holiday commemorating the end of slavery. The city says refuse collection will remain on a normal schedule.

As a federal holiday, post offices and banks will also be closed. USPS says aside from holiday premium Priority Mail Express, there will be no mail delivery Wednesday.

Juneteenth commemorates when Union soldiers brought the news of freedom to enslaved Black people in Galveston, Texas, in 1865, two months after the Confederacy had surrendered in the Civil War and about 2 1/2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves in Southern states.
