Spearheading city projects runs in the Roberson family

Besides approving the long anticipated Holman Highway/Highway 1 Roundabout project, new long-term vending locations and the TAMC-proposed 3/8 percent special sales tax, the Monterey city council approved of some special guests that made an appearance at Tuesday's city council meeting.
The council received a presentation from Bay View Academy students and Student Oceanography Club adviser Jennifer Ortiz, about a utility box at the corner of Pacific and Madison Streets in front of the Monterey Public Library that the students painted. Ortiz, who also happens to be Mayor Roberson's daughter, along with the students, spear-headed the endeavor that is the club's year-long “make the world a better place” project. During the presentation where the young people explained the steps involved in transforming the once gray box into a piece of artwork of colorful sea creatures, they were commended. At one point Roberson personally thanked Ortiz and said “I do not kiss all presenters – this was my daughter!”
