The Crazy Bull Grill and Saloon has been the scene for two recent episodes of violence, and now Village President Brian LeClercq is weighing his options for the establishment.
A representative of the bar met with the Village Clerk at about noon Wednesday and surrendered all applicable licenses to the village, Jones said.
"I think from a practical standpoint that's probably the end of the Crazy Bull as far as this current owner is concerned," Jones said.
The move comes just one day after Village President Brian LeClercq said he was ready to take action against the bar in the wake of two recent violent incidents.

The first incident at the bar occurred in early October when a member of the security staff was stabbed with a broken bottle during a fight.
The most recent incident occurred Thursday night when Oswego Police were called to the bar for a report of multiple gunshots fired during an altercation outside the bar. No one was injured during the shooting, but Oswego Police Capt. Jeff Burgner said he believes the violence likely was gang-related.
LeClercq said Tuesday he was "very disappointed" by the activity at the bar ,and was growing concerned with the violence given the establishment's proximity to two local schools.
Jones said even though the bar now is closed for good, it's his understanding that it had not re-opened since the shooting incident.
