POPLARVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Pearl River County supervisors have voted to place county seals on unmarked and incorrectly labeled vehicles.

Supervisor Malcolm Perry says Mississippi state law requires county vehicles to have markers on both sides and the rear. The requirement also applies to leased vehicles.

Perry tells The Picayune Item (http://bit.ly/1Gp4pob ) he found his county truck - and many others - is only marked on the side.

The only vehicles exempt are those of the sheriff’s department if supervisors identify them in board minutes.

The county expects to have the work done by the end of this week.

State law requires vehicle doors to be painted on both sides in letters at least three inches in height and on the rear in letters not less than one and one-half inches in height.
