83-210.County or city enforcement; powers and duties of officials. (a) Any county or city in the state may establish a department of public inspection of weights and measures, appoint inspectors of weights and measures and fix their compensation and pass such ordinances relating to weights and measures not in conflict with the state laws as may be deemed necessary. If a county or city establishes such a department it shall provide the department with suitable quarters, a set of secondary standards and all other equipment for the proper performance of duties. All county and city standards shall be tried, proved and sealed under the direction of the secretary, and shall be returned to the secretary for verification at least once in every year.

(b) Any weights and measures official appointed for a county or city shall have the duties enumerated in subsections (e) to (h), inclusive, of K.S.A. 83-206, and amendments thereto, and the powers enumerated in K.S.A. 83-208 and 83-209, and amendments thereto. These powers and duties shall extend to their respective jurisdictions, except that the jurisdiction of a county official shall not extend to any city for which a weights and measures official has been appointed. Weights and measures officials appointed for a county or city shall exercise such additional powers as may be granted by the governing body of such county or city, but such additional powers shall not be less than the powers granted to state inspectors of weights and measures under chapter 83 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, and shall not be in conflict with powers granted to the secretary under chapter 83 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto.

(c) All departments of public inspection of weights and measures established by cities or counties prior to July 1, 1985, are hereby specifically continued in existence.
