Agriculture, Weights and Measures

Shared Mission

Promoting a thriving agricultural community, healthy residents and balanced environment.  Supporting a fair marketplace and consumer confidence in the accuracy of product weight, measure and price.

We serve you by protecting public health, the environment and local agriculture.

Here is a sample of what we do: 

  • Ensure the safe use of pesticides and investigate illnesses
  • Inspect eggs for defects to prevent food-borne illnesses
  • Prevent the establishment of pests that require pesticide controls, sting or severely injure people, or inhibit growing fresh nutritious fruits, vegetables and other plants
  • Promote the use of effective biocontrol measures
  • Regulate organic growers, certified producers and certified farmers’ markets to allow local marketing of fresh commodities
  • Ensure accurate net quantity of packaged goods and accuracy of commercial weighing, measuring and scanning devices
  • Protect people from injury and disease caused by wildlife
