What We Do
Weights and Measures
The service mission of Weights and Measures is to protect the buyer and seller in all monetary transactions that use weight, measure or count.
Devices (Scales & Meters)
Weights and Measures Inspectors test gasoline pumps, scales, and other similar devices for accuracy so that consumers will be charged the correct price.
Packages are inspected to make sure they contain the stated weight, measure or count. Scanners at check out stands are inspected to ensure the consumer receives the lowest advertised price.
Gas samples are tested for quality standards. Price signs and labels at gas stations are inspected for accuracy, size and legibility.
Weighmasters issue weight certificates that are used as a basis for money transactions such as refunds at recycling establishments. These businesses are inspected for the accuracy of their certificates and weight determinations.
Service agents install and repair weighing and measuring devices. The quality of their work is monitored throughout the year.
