9:25 am
into something like taco bell, they're hiring, it's about what's a good fit, and what has the long retention. >> what's the goal? do you have an idea of how much revenue is going to come in through the purple meters. >> total. only thing i can actually see is the sponsorship money itself. that's 60,000, and if we get ten more, that will be 120,000. everything else is icing on the cake. >> these meters are placed not real near meters. people aren't going to get confused. >> that's a good point. actually, paula doubleday our graphic designer, she's done the web site, she's amazing, everything she did with the meters, it's bright purple. there's signage on it. there's a marquee that says this is not paying for your park. you will definitely get a ticket. it's about our program, downtown streets team, and the idea is ending homelessness,
9:26 am
and that's what we're trying to do. >> marin county project manager. appreciate your time. thank you for coming in. coming up next, mornings on 2, a surprise for a hard working vallejo teenager, the act of kindness some benicia police officers are offering up. northern california's first virtual reality roller coaster, of course we sent ktvu alex savidge to mess it up. >> i think it is. up next, his reaction to a bending ride. >> doesn't look like he's smiling. no. father's day -- smiling. >> no. >>
