Early in his term, Mayor Law agreed to have the City clear snow from the streets west and south of the railroad depot because snow was locking the station and creating a hazard, and he renewed the agreement to provide free culinary water to the Civilian Conservation Corps Camp. He authorized “plastering, painting, calcimining, fumigation etc.” at the City Jail.City Council minutes.
In response to the City Health Nurse’s plea for help in “combating the health menace caused by the collection of refuse, dead animal carcasses, etc. at the Tabernacle and in the Pine View Canal,” city officials assigned the Police Department and the garbage collector to help with the problem.
Brigham City officials agreed to host the Utah State Semi-pro Baseball Tournament at the City Ballpark for five consecutive years. The first of these tourneys was held in the summer of 1939. Proceeds amounted to more than $500, and Brigham City’s team won the tournament.
During his last year in office, the City leased the local airport from the Federal Aeronautics Commission. In addition, Box Elder County agreed to help pay for upkeep and maintenance of the airport.
