Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker won half a loaf on his privatization push Wednesday, as the County Board finished work on the 2010 budget that will increase the property tax levy by $5.6 million.

….. The board backed Walker on outsourcing scores of housekeeping jobs but resisted the move to privatize security at the courthouse complex, though the board did agree to privatize security at the county’s City Campus, at N. 27th and W. Wells streets.
