Do our property taxes pay for roads?

No, property taxes pay for things like school districts and general government operations but not roads. In Pinal County, roads are only funded through Federal and state grants, state-shared revenues of the Highway-Use Revenue Fund (also known as HURF), vehicle license taxes, and half-cent transportation excise tax (pothole tax).
