Former Indianapolis Colts tight end Ken Dilger, in a plan pitched yesterday to Anderson city officials, said he aims to buy and revitalize foreclosed houses, and then sell them to low- and moderate-income buyers.

The Spencer County native, who played seven seasons with the Colts, owns Legends Title, a title insurance company, and Dilger Financial Corp., a commercial and residential mortgage firm.

Dilger told the officials that the investments would give the city a shot in the arm and boost property tax collections, according to The Herald Bulletin of Anderson.

Anderson has been stung by the losses of thousands of automotive jobs in recent years.
