Bluffton Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a $18.37 million budget for fiscal 2013-14. The budget is $640,000 less than the amended budget for the current fiscal year, which  ends June 30. The new spending plan calls for raising property taxes to offset an  expected $20-million loss in property values from an upcoming  countywide reassessment, as well as a tax increase to cover the first  debt payment on the town's Law Enforcement Center.
