The five questions for the city of Chandler's $272.69 million bond all appeared to be passing as of 8 p.m., according to results from Maricopa County Elections.

The bond package was split into five questions: parks, fire, police, streets and facilities. All five categories were passing as of 8 p.m. Nov. 2.

The bond money will fund a series of multimillion-dollar projects related to streets, parks, public safety and city facilities. It has been 13 years since the city’s last bond election when voters approved $451.44 million in bond funds. Voters saw the bond package broken into five separate questions on their ballot.

The bond does not increase the city’s portion of a resident’s property tax bill, according to city officials.

The bond calls for $72.99 million for parks, $55.19 million for the Chandler Police Department, $25.16 million for the Chandler Fire Department, $33.57 million for city facilities and $85.78 million on the city’s streets. All the funding is one-time funding—meaning it is intended to go toward big-ticket items, not toward ongoing costs such as salaries.


Chandler USD 15% override

Chandler USD's 15% override was passing as of the 8 p.m. ballot tabulation released by Maricopa County Elections, with 55.87% of participants voting yes on the override.

Chandler USD had a 15% override on the Nov. 2 ballot. The district is currently operating under a 15% M&O operating override. By law, the last year of full funding of the override is fiscal year 2022-23. The renewal of the 15% override offers the district the ability to maintain class sizes, retain and attract teachers, enhance technology and maintain safety features at the district's schools.

Elections officials are expected to tabulate ballots dropped off on Election Day later in the week.

All results are unofficial until canvassed.
