FY 2018-19 Budget Brief

Preparation for Fiscal Year 2018-19 Annual Budget and 10-year CIP 
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. An important part of this process is getting input from the community, which begins with the Citizen Budget Survey.
