Property tax is supposed to rise and fall with the market value of housing so I thought. So why a hike at the moment when prices are still relatively very low?

It seems as though when the market price of housing increases you get a at least a commensurate increase in the tax, but when it falls they change the figure by which the estimated market value is multiplied to ensure they get the same or a higher tax.
