MILWAUKEE - The State of Wisconsin is lending a helping hand to Milwaukee to help solve it's problem with foreclosed homes.  The city owns more than 1-thousand buildings, mostly homes because of the foreclosure crisis a few years ago. These are properties the city does not want. Earlier this week Mayor Barrett pledged 11.7 million dollars to rehabilitate homes or demolish homes that can't be saved. These nuisance properties bring down property values for neighborhoods, but also pose public safety concerns because they can attract the criminal element. Governor Walker met with Mayor Barrett Tuesday and said the state will give Milwaukee 2-million dollars to help deal with problem properties.
