Departments - Consumer Services - Weights and Measures

Franklin County Auditor Clarence Mingo serves as the Sealer of Weights & Measures for businesses in Franklin County, excluding those located in the City of Columbus, and is responsible for the enforcement of all Ohio laws relating to weights and measures. The auditor is required to see that these laws are strictly enforced and shall assist in the prosecution of violations within his jurisdiction. The auditor appoints deputy inspectors to perform and carry out all required weights and measures duties.

We recently filmed a video on the work we do inspecting scales at various locations throughout Dublin, Ohio. You can also check out some of our videos about the work our weights and measures inspectors do at local home and garden stores with items such as mulch and this video highlights how our insepectors measure firewood to help protect consumers.
