The City of De Pere Health Department acts as an agent for the Weights and Measures Program of the State of Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP). The City of De Pere conducts all program inspections and handles the billing for the program.

 

The Weights and Measures Program protects consumers by monitoring the accuracy of gas station pumps, grocery store scales and packages (those sold by weight), checkcout scanners, and timers (found in laundromats, taxis, tanning beds, etc.).

Weights and Measures Inspections

All establishments in the City of De Pere that utilize pumps, scales, scanners, or timers (as described above) in the sale of goods to consumers are routinely inspected by the City of De Pere Weights and Measures inspector. You can be sure that you are using a Weights and Measures-inspected device by looking for the City of De Pere Weights and Measures Program sticker.

If your establishment is inspected through the Weights and Measures Program, you can expect to receive your annual program invoice in the spring of every year. The invoice is issued by and paid directly to the City of De Pere. If you have questions about the invoice, you may contact the De Pere Health Department at 920-339-4054.
