How Much Should A 290 Camera Maintenance Contract Cost?

The city of Wilkes-Barre collected bids for a service contract for a 290 camera system installed in 2010. They are trying to see if they can get a better deal than their current $25,000 annual contract, which comes out to $86 per camera.

$25,000 seems like a fair deal, but I have not written a service contract for a large municipal system.

Would you bid on this contract? What would you charge and what would it cover (or exclude)?
