Officials say property owners in Maricopa County will see virtually the same property tax bills as they did last year.
The county Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a plan to keep steady the property taxes tax rates for county government, a flood control district and a library district.
The board approved the rates at a time when property valuations in Maricopa County continue to decline.
The county will see $31.6 million less in property tax revenue in the coming year.
The board approved a county budget of $2.3 billion for the 2012 fiscal year.
The county budget assumes that revenues will be relatively flat.
