Budget & CIP Planning

Preparation for 2019-20 Annual Budget & 2020-2029 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 2019-20 Budget process is underway with the completion of the Citizen Budget Survey.  As a part of the budget development process, the City's Budget Office conducted a survey of residents in November and December of 2018.  This gave residents a chance to voice their opinions on various topics related to Quality of Life, Return on Tax Dollars, and Citizen Satisfaction with Overall City Services, as well as "Areas of Interest" including Transportation, Public Safety, Leisure/Cultural/Education, City Utilities, and General Services.  The results were compiled and presented to Mayor and the members of City Council at the Budget Kickoff Thursday, January 24, 2019, for consideration.

Citizen Budget Survey Results

On January 24, 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.  

FY 2019-20 Budget Kickoff

A Council Budget Workshop was held on February 11, 2019, to provide financial information relative the FY 2019-20 Budget.

On February 28, 2019, Mayor Kevin Hartke and the City Council hosted Budget Connect, an annual online forum where Chandler residents ask questions and learn about the City’s budget and fiscal policies during a live event that was streamed to the City’s website, YouTube Channel and Facebook Page in real time. This event gave residents an opportunity to attend or submit ideas, questions, and other input through social media sites and hear responses from various City staff members.
