The City of Racine 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). While State-employed inspectors conduct all program inspections, it is the Health Department that
handles 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), checkout scanners, and timers (found in laundromats, taxis, etc.).
Weights and Measures Complaints
If you encounter a gas pump that is not dispensing the proper amount, a grocery store scale that is weighing inaccurately, a retail checkout scanner that is not scanning correctly, or any other related issue, you may contact the DATCP by:

Weights and Measures Inspections
All establishments in the City of Racine that utilize pumps, scales, scanners, or timers (as described above) in the sale of goods to consumers are routinely inspected by a State-employed Weights and Measures inspector. You can be sure that you are using a Weights and
Measures-inspected device by looking for the round WI DATCP 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, not the State. If you have questions about the
invoice, you may contact the Environmental Health Division at 262-636-9203.
The amount of the invoice you will receive depends on the number of pumps, scales, scanners, and/or timers in use at your business. Charges are as follows:
In addition to the above fees, a penalty will also be assessed for late payment of the Weights and Measures invoice. Penalties are as follows:
