On June 5, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors approved a tentative budget of $373.7 million for fiscal year 2013-14. Sixty-three percent of the money will be spent on public safety.
The county is not increasing the property tax rate, continuing to base figures on deflated real estate sales from 2010 and 2011.
In the next fiscal year, the county is prioritizing highway completion, road extensions and the surfacing of dirt roads.
The final budget will be adopted at a future meeting. By law, the final budget cannot be higher than the tentative budget.
