It is her hope that you will find this information to be helpful.

Commercial Device Weights
Due to changes in the operation of the State of Ohio Weights and Measures programs, many of the above devices have not been tested to prove that they are both accurate and correct. These devices are extremely important to businesses, as they are used to determine weight, measure, or count for the purpose of placing a value on their commodities.

Many of our businesses in the county have a contract or agreement with a service company to inspect and maintain their devices at regular intervals to ensure that they are in proper working condition. Weights and Measures commend them for doing this, and strongly encourage them to continue this practice. If your business does not currently have a contract with a service company, I am asking you to consider doing so. Please see details on the above link.

Conveyance Fee Notice
The Ohio Revised Code 319.54(G)(3)(a) reference to Federal Instrumentalities, which are exempt from Real Property Conveyance Fees, does not apply to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. The Auditor's Office does require appropriate conveyance fees for these conveyances.

Muskingum Watershed - Updated appraisal record
The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) has completed an update to its land parcel information system (Subsequent Appraisal Record) as required by law. Legal notices were published January 28, 2011 in the daily newspapers across the MWCD region.
