Budget & CIP Planning

Planning for FY 2022-23 Proposed Budget and 2023-2032 CIP 

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

 

On October 11, 2021, 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. 

FY 2022-23 Budget Kickoff Presentation

The FY 2022-23 Budget planning process is underway, and we have recently completed the Resident Budget Survey.  As a part of the budget development process, the City's Budget Office conducted a survey of residents in October and November of 2021,  To give residents a chance to voice their opinions on various topics related to Quality of Life, Return on Tax Dollars, and Resident Satisfaction with Overall City Services, as well as provide feedback on the Council’s focus areas and strategic goals  including being the most connected City, being a leader in trust and transparency, maintaining fiscal sustainability, attracting a range of private sector businesses, fostering a contemporary culture that embraces unity, and being safe and beautiful .  The results were compiled and were presented to the Mayor and the members of City Council on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, for their consideration.
