New Flyer says the expansion, including $3 million in new machinery and equipment, will generate 136 new jobs. New Flyer is asking Stearns County for a $250,000 interest-free loan. Commissioners are expected to consider that request Tuesday.

The St. Cloud Times says the city of St. Cloud has already approved a $100,000 loan for the project. New Flyer is also seeking a $1 million loan from the Minnesota Investment Fund.
