Public Hearing Notice: Registration of Weighing or Measuring Devices
Monday, June 26, 2017 | Public Meeting Notice | Weights and Measures
The Ohio Department of Agriculture will hold a public hearing for the purpose of accepting testimony on the proposed amendments made to Ohio Administrative Code section 901:6-4-01.

Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) 901:6-4-01 outlines the application process for obtaining a permit to operate a commercially used weighing and measuring device in the state of Ohio. The rule is being amended to correct the number of days an applicant may submit his application late before the Department may issue a late fee. Currently, the rule states ninety days while the statute (ORC 1327.501) states sixty days. This revision ensures that the rule and the statute are aligned.

The hearing will be held on:
July 24, 2017 at 9:00 A.M.
Ohio Department of Agriculture
Bromfield Administration Building
Hearing Room 133 (Seminar “B”)
8995 East Main Street

The hearing will be conducted in accordance with Chapter 119 of the Revised Code. Any person affected by the no change rule package may appear and be heard in person, by his attorney, or both, may present his position, arguments, or contentions, orally or in writing, offer and examine witnesses, and present evidence tending to show that the no change rule package, if adopted or effectuated, will be unreasonable or unlawful.

More information on the rule package, including a business impact analysis and copies of the rules, can be found at http://www.agri.ohio.gov/proposedrules/proposedrules.aspx or by visiting the Register of Ohio at www.registerofohio.state.oh.us.

Any person who wishes to present his position, arguments, or contentions in writing, other than at the public hearing, may do so by either mailing his or her written comments to the Ohio Department of Agriculture, c/o Legal Section, 8995 East Main Street, Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068; by email at ecomments@agri.ohio.gov, or by transmitting by facsimile at (614) 995-4585.
