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.
BUDGET PROCESS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2015-16
The FY 2015-16 Budget process is now underway.
CITIZEN BUDGET SURVEY
As a part of the budget development process the City’s Budget Office conducted a survey of residents in December and January. This gave residents a chance to voice their opinions on various topics related to City services and the upcoming budget. The results can be found at the link below, and have been presented to Mayor Jay Tibshraeny and the members of City Council for their consideration.
On February 26, 2015, Mayor Tibshraeny hosted Budget Connect. This is a vitural forum driven by resident questions and concerns meant to give them a better understanding of the City's budget and fiscal policies.
