DULUTH — Cirrus Aircraft aims to grow its operations, and the company is looking to the city and St. Louis County for a bit of help, in the form of a $1.2 million tax abatement package.

Both the city and county will be asked to forgo $600,000 in tax revenues over the next 10 years as Cirrus seeks to ramp up production, with the goal of tripling its output within the same decade, according to a county document.

The growth is expected to result in the creation of at least 80 additional jobs, bringing the company’s local workforce to more than 1,286, according to Chris Fleege, director of Duluth’s planning and economic development division. Cirrus already is Duluth’s largest manufacturer.
