Chandler's Annual Budget, Capital Improvement Program (CIP)
and Financial Policies

The City's current Annual Budget and 10-year Capital Improvement Program documents are available below,
along with the Financial policies and important dates and documents regarding the annual Budget and CIP process.

Chandler’s budget is a collaborative effort between the City Council, City Manager and City Staff, and the Citizens of Chandler. The budget incorporates multiple funds for specific uses.

Many of the services provided to Chandler residents are financed through the General Fund. This fund will be a primary focus of the budget meetings and is used to support many of the services residents rely upon most, including police and fire services, libraries, maintenance of city streets, parks, and other infrastructure. The majority of General Fund revenues come from local City sales tax and state-shared revenues, with smaller amounts from fees, fines, and charges for services.

Fiscal Year 2017-18 Citizen Budget Survey
The FY 2017-18 Budget process is now underway with the Citizen Budget Survey. As a part of the budget development process the City’s Budget Office conducted a survey of residents in November and December. This gave residents a chance to voice their opinions on various topics related to City services and the upcoming budget. The results will be compiled and presented to Mayor Jay Tibshraeny and the members of City Council for their consideration.

Check back soon for the Citizen Budget Survey Results.
