The East Troy Cycling Classic will return to the Village Square June 22 for its eighth year as part of the Tour of America’s Dairyland.

The East Troy Village Board approved the East Troy Area Chamber of Commerce’s request to host the race after some discussion regarding a contingency plan should the infrastructure work on the Village Square not be completed in time for the race.

The work is scheduled to be finished by May 25 around the square, for the Memorial Day weekend activities, but some board members were concerned about delays in the project, which includes some water main replacements and some sewer work, should the weather not cooperate.

Sarah Nunn, of Lynch and Associates, the village’s engineering firm, said the timeline to complete the work by May 25 included extra time to allow for delays and told the board the village was “locked in” to having the work done by then because Walworth County was scheduled to begin replacing the Highway G bridge over Honey Creek four days later.

She told the board there would be “substantial” financial penalties to the village should the work not be completed by May 25. She said the fines from the county could be up to $10,000 a day, so the village was highly motivated to have the work done on time.

Chamber Executive Director Vanessa Lenz said they would be working closely with the Department of Public Works in the village to ensure everyone knew what was going on and when, so there wouldn’t be a problem.
