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 service, libraries, maintenance of city streets, parks, and other infrastructure. General Fund revenues largely come from local City sales tax and state-shared revenues. 

The proposed budget is available for review online at chandleraz.gov/budget, at the Downtown Chandler Library, 22 S. Delaware St., and the City Clerk’s Office, 175 S. Arizona Ave. 

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 the City Council for their consideration. In addition, Budget Connect, an interactive community budget meeting, was held in February to allow public input. To view the survey results or watch the Budget Connect, visit chandleraz.gov/budget. Additionally, two public budget workshops with Mayor and Council took place in February and March to discuss the upcoming budget.
