Budget & CIP Planning

Planning for FY 2020-21 Proposed Budget and 2021-2030 CIP 

The preparation of Chandler’s budget is a collaborative effort between the City Council, City Manager, City Staff and the citizens of Chandler.

The Fiscal Year 2020-21 Budget process is underway with the completion of the Citizen Budget Survey.  As a part of the budget development process, the Budget Office conducted a survey of residents in October and November of 2019.  This gave residents a chance to voice their opinions on various topics related to Quality of Life, Return on Tax Dollars, Citizen Satisfaction with Overall City Services and City Council Strategic Goals.  The results have been compiled and were presented to Mayor and the members of City Council. 

Citizen Budget Survey Results

On December 12, 2019, a meeting was held where the Mayor and City Council reviewed the Strategic Goals & Objectives, Capital Improvement Project Guidelines, and Financial Policies while considering the significant budgetary impacts for the upcoming fiscal year.  The City Council then provided direction in the form of General Fund priorities, that will serve as a foundation for recommendations to be brought forward in subsequent budget planning meetings for discussion and approval.
