Columbus-based Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) is seeking tax abatement from the city to build a proposed $15 million facility, add workers and upgrade a building. The company says the moves would also help retain hundreds of jobs. Cummins is slated to go before the city council Tuesday.

In an Economic Revitalization Area designation request, Cummins says 25 jobs could be added and 80 employees would be retained as part of the multi-million dollar investment to erect a nearly 500,000 square-foot warehouse adjacent to its Walesboro facility.
