BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

Town council members in Bluffton have approved a more than $36 million budget for the upcoming fiscal year. 

And with this new budget comes good news for residents, because they've reduced the property tax millage rate. The savings will be based on the value of the home so residents with a $250,000 home will be saving about $20. 

Officials say they were able to make this reduction because of the increasing growth in the area.
