John E. Meyer, Jr., Oneida County Director of Weights and Measures, April 11th

At 7:30 PM Tuesday, April 11, 2016 John E. Meyer, Jr.  will give a lecture open to the public about the Oneida County Bereau of Weights and Measures at the Rome Historical Society, 200 Church Street, Rome, NY.

The mission of the Bureau of Weights and Measures is to promote equity in all commercial transactions based on weight or measure.

Have you ever wondered about?

  • If you really got ten gallons the last time you filled your car with gasoline?
  • If that premium gasoline really was 93 Octane?
  • If you really got a half a pound of corned beef last week at the deli?

Mr. Meyer has been Director of the Oneida County Weights and Measures since 1997. He will explain the tools and techniques his office uses to ensure that people follow the rules and that no one gets cheated. Additionally, he will explain many of the different types of inspections and testing they perform. He will display some of his smaller testing standards for the attendees to see. The adherence to regulations and the role of the “honest broker” is critical for science, industry and commerce. He received AAS degree in Civil Engineering Technology from MVCC in 1995.

An informal dinner will be held at the SAVOY in Rome on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. Anyone interested in having dinner with our guest speaker and some Trustees, please contact Fred Haritatos at telephone 315-336-9289 or email at before April 10, 2017.

This meeting is open to the public.
Hope you will attend.
