The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a village (such as Viola). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Viola or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
