The True Transactions Award is a recognition given by Franklin County Auditor Michael Stinziano to businesses that have a flawless record of using accurate scanners and scales that have been verified by Auditor’s office Weights and Measures inspectors. It was first awarded in March 2019, and is given out monthly to deserving businesses in townships, villages and cities across Franklin County.
Auditor Stinziano 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. Weights & Measures inspectors protect consumers by checking any weighing or measuring device that is used in commercial transactions at least once annually, including gas station pumps, grocery store scanners and scales, taxi meters, firewood and more.
