Chandler City Council approved a one-time bonus to all full- and part-time city employees during a council meeting April 8.

The council approved a one-time "exceptional performance award" of $3,000 to 1,522 full-time city employees and $1,500 to 29 part-time employees.


According to city staff, the funding came from a portion of the $8 million in wage and benefit savings the city achieved throughout the coronavirus pandemic by deferring the filling of vacant positions throughout the city.
