At his first City Council meeting, Mayor Bunderson set a new precedent by asking Reverend C.E. Fowler to offer a prayer to open the meeting.
He authorized $800 to finance 20 summer concerts by the Brigham Scout and Concert Band and $300 for a place to store the musical instruments and other equipment. City leaders authorized building a race track at Rees Pioneer Park and purchased a tract of land just north of the park, leveled the property, and installed a board fence around the track. It was completed and used for horse racing on Merchants Day, May 14, 1927.
Achievements during Mayor Bunderson’s time in office included road improvement, planting of shrubs and flowers in the cemetery, and furnishing the property for the construction of an armory building in town. The City allowed the Utah Idaho Central Railway to construct a spur track parallel to its main line on 5th West between 6th and 7th South, and allocated $100 to the Daughters of Utah Pioneers for a showcase to house relics.
The Hervin Bunderson Center, which currently houses the Box Elder Museum of Natural History as well as the Brigham City Recreation Department, and the Boys and Girls Club, in in the former Bunderson Elementary School, both named after him.
