Police have been called to the bar on numerous occasions and have documented repeated fights, shootings, and other issues.
Mann said the police were subpoenaed and scheduled for a hearing Tuesday morning in Green Tree regarding the liquor license. Instead, he received notice Monday from the attorney for the state Liquor Control Board that the hearing was called off.
“The attorney for the Colonial Grill indicated that they give up, they quit, they’re closing the bar down.”
Mann said the bar is now closed permanently, though he is not sure what will happen to the liquor license and whether it will remain in safe keeping.
Mann said he is doing everything he can to make sure the license gets destroyed and nobody else gets it.
Mann told council there is talk of plans for the bike shop next door to expand and offer a snack area for waiting customers. Owners of the bike shop could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.
“I hope that’s what happens. That would be very nice, but the Colonial Grill is done,” Mann said.
