Municipality Weights and Measures Programs

Some municipalities in Wisconsin maintain their own weights and measures program. Cities administering their own program employ their own inspectors; however, city inspectors enforce the same laws and standards as state inspectors. A list of municipalities with their own weights and measures program can be found through the Wisconsin Weights and Measures Association​.​​
