The City of Ithaca continues to look ahead after Friday’s fatal truck crash into Simeon’s on the Commons that took the life of 27 year old Amanda Bush.

Executive Director of the Downtown Ithaca Alliance Gary Ferguson spoke with Simeon’s owners, and he says they’ve been committed since day one to bring the restaurant back.

He says they’re fully committed to rebuilding the restaurant and maintaining their place on the Commons.

Ferguson says businesses are giving an incredible outpouring of support, in offering temporary jobs to displaced workers and donating to the memorial fund for Amanda Bush.
