COUNTY OFFICERS These are issued to county officers and use the standard county prefixes.
These were first issued on the 1979 blue base.

WHAT THE NUMBERS MEAN
The single digit on the county officer plates indicates the type of officer the plate is registered to.

Numbers 1 through 3 are for elected county officials.
Numbers 4 through 9 are for non-elected (appointed) county officials.
Thanks to Paul Rosenberg for this information.

Naturally, as people will pick the lowest number available, we have more 1's and 4's than anything else.
Car numbers are allowed here as well; I have only seen -2, indicating a second car.
