Budget Connect   The 2014 Budget Connect was held Thursday, Feb, 27 2014, starting at 6 p.m. It's an online forum to discuss the City’s budget for the upcoming fiscal year. The purpose of this forum was to allow the community to come together in a virtual setting, no matter where you may be. It is also meant to give residents a better understanding of the City’s budget and fiscal policies.

 

  Mayor Jay Tibshraeny held the very first  Neighborhood Connect, a Virtual Town Hall, on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011. In addition, the City of Chandler's Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC) is a seven-member Mayor and Council appointed committee. The NAC holds Public meetings the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the Neighborhood Resources Office located at 235 S. Arizona Avenue. As part of the Committee's commitment to the community, the NAC hosts the Mayor's Listening Tour where Mayor Jay Tibshraeny will listen to residents speak out on the various challenges facing their neighborhoods and community. Stay tuned for dates of upcoming tours!

    Mayor Tibshraeny worked with staff to launch Chandler Career Connect, a citywide jobs initiative to aid those in the community in need of work, or perhaps a new career path. The event was a huge success. Click here for work-related resources.
