2000 technology expenditures: $500,000 on Internet-related expenses. Other IT spending not budgeted separately.

On Web benefits: The Internet has been a good way for the administration to get useful information to people, such as "Where's the closest park? Where is the closest police station in case of an emergency? Where do I sign my child up for kindergarten? I'm going to buy a home; what is the assessed value of that home in Boston that I'm going to buy?"
