Valdosta - People in one South Georgia town should get a break on their property taxes next year.

Valdosta city leaders are hoping to lower the mileage rate from 4.48 to 4.41. They say even with the city's rapid growth, lowering the rate is possible because of an increase in sales tax revenue.

"It's not a huge savings, for a $150,000 house it will be about $7.00, but it shows good responses on the management of our budget and it also shows that when we can, we give it back," said Mayor John Fretti.

The Valdosta city council will vote on the mileage rate Friday.
