The Saline County Commission considered the trademarking of newly adopted logos for various county departments, including the Health Department, Department of Senior Services, and Expo Center. This strategic move aims to protect the county's identity from unauthorized usage and misuse, particularly in political and commercial contexts. The commission's approval seeks to contract with Jeff Thompson, P.A. of Thompson Law in Salina for trademark services, with an estimated cost not exceeding $11,000. The staff recommended trademarking all four logos, emphasizing the importance of legal protection in safeguarding the county's image. The budget impact is expected to be covered by the General Courthouse budget's legal fees line item. The commission decided on this matter during its meeting on February 13, 2024. The vote passed 5-0.
