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 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.

FINANCIAL POLICIES

The City of Chandler’s financial policies set high standards for stewardship over Chandler's financial resources and provide a guide for sound fiscal planning, budgeting, accounting, and reporting. The following financial policies provide the basis for each budget year.
