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 information and documents regarding the Annual Budget and CIP process, and the Financial policies.

Preparation for Fiscal Year 2018-19 Annual Budget and 10-year CIP 
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.

An important part of this process is getting input from the community, which begins with the Citizen Budget Survey.

Previously Held Scheduled Public Meetings or Public Input
As part of the budget development process the City’s Budget Office conducted an online survey of residents in November and December and presented the results to Mayor Jay Tibshraeny and the members of City Council for their consideration.
