There are a couple of problems with your argument. You can always go onto the county's website and check the historical tax rates, and in fact, you'll see that the city actually lowered taxes about five years ago.
The other problem is that after the county revalues property and "gives the city and county a raise" as you call it, tax rates are adjusted to what is called revenue neutral. That means the tax rates get adjusted so the city cannot make money when property values go up.
I believe I would have appealed the county's last revaluation on my home if it increased 61%.
