Budget Input: Good Governance

Chandler City Hall

Through decades of strong leadership and responsible spending, Chandler has become one of the most financially stable cities in America. We are one of about 40 cities nationally with Triple A Bond Ratings from all three rating agencies. Long-term vision and fiscal responsibility enable taxpayers to experience some of the lowest costs for services, utility charges and sales tax rates in the Valley.

Thoughtful, consistent planning, investments in infrastructure and business growth have transformed our community into one of the strongest economic centers in the southwest. The strategic framework adopted by the City Council builds on a foundation of community ideals and input gathered over the years. This roadmap of priorities reveals Chandler’s direction to be a world-class city that provides an exceptional quality of life.
