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.
 

Previously Held Public Meetings, Public Input, and Information
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.


The City has received its 2017 Net Assessed Value Detail Report from the Maricopa County Assessor. The report sets Chandler's Limited Property Value (used for calculating property tax) at $2,675,480,112. This is a 4.76% increase from the previous year. The Full Cash Value amount is $3,167,080,795, which is a 4.42% increase from the previous year. The Full Cash Value is used for bonded indebtedness calculations and is not used in the calculation of property tax.


On February 23, 2017, Mayor Tibshraeny hosted Budget Connect. This is a virtual forum driven by resident questions and concerns meant to give them a better understanding of the City’s budget and fiscal policies.


A Council Budget Workshop was held on March 20, 2017 to provide financial information relative to the FY 2017-18 Budget and 2018-2027 Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
