City Council members on Tuesday were utilizing the first council agenda printed using Chatype - the city's original typeface developed locally as a distinctive Chattanooga type.
The developers were presented a resolution by city officials.
Councilman Chris Anderson said Chattanooga "is a one of a kind city that deserves its own type."
The council also voted on a resolution by Councilman Moses Freeman urging federal officials not to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and to seek to cut the disparities between the poor and the super rich.
It passed 5-4. In favor were Council members Freeman, Russell Gilbert, Yusuf Hakeem, Carol Berz and Chris Anderson. Opposed were Ken Smith, Larry Grohn, Jerry Mitchell and Chip Henderson.
The City Council agreed to renew an $800,000 annual staffing contract after getting a further explanation from Andrew Kean, chief operating officer.
Some council members earlier questioned why the contract that has been held by Outsource Staffing was not put out to bid.
The council approved an appointment of Joe Ramsey to the Beer and Wrecker Board and Jim Levine to the Chattanooga Housing Authority Board as well as Anj McClain to the Air Pollution Control Board and Gladys Pineda-Loher, Nicholas Siler, Nandini Makrandi, Jocelyn Loza, Rebecca Clay-Flores and Teletha McJunkin to the Board of the Multicultural Affairs..
