The city of San Diego and the Santa Clara Valley Water District are among the local entities in the early stages of technology projects.
The city will spend about $3.5 million in fiscal 2024 on hardware, software and connectivity; $1.5 million for installation and maintenance over the life of the contract; and $100,000 to replace LED lights. The network will cost about $2 million annually over the remaining fiscal years.

The City Council agreed this week to pay 35 percent more per year for citywide usage of Dell computers as well as Microsoft programs such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Teams and OneDrive.
