City Budget Submitted for 2006-07


Chandler is poised to add 117 employees, build new parks and widen roads without any increases in taxes or fees, according to a preliminary budget released Tuesday. (snip)

In keeping with Chandler's traditionally frugal financial policies, the budget includes a $101 million "rainy day fund" and a policy not to spend growth-related revenues for ongoing expenses. (snip)

Some of biggest proposed spending increases are for public works and public safety. Roads, water and sewer systems are among the beneficiaries of the $167 million public-works budget, up 35 percent from last year. The $109 million public-safety budget is 30 percent higher than last year's.
