HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)-- Lawyers for the Huntsville City School District have been asked to start working on the paperwork to trademark city school logos and mascots.

School board members say the move will keep money currently being made on local schools by outside vendors inside the schools.

District Chief Financial Officer Jason Taylor confirms the district is in the very early stages of working to accomplish the request brought up during a work session Thursday by school board member Laurie McCaulley.

The move would make it illegal to use district school logos unless the vendor has permission from the schools.

There is no word on when this might be completed but Taylor says he hopes soon.
