Early in his term of office, Mayor Knudson requested a complete survey of the cemetery with maps drawn and worked to locate pioneer graves where no records existed. Because of a typhoid epidemic the previous summer, he approved changing the city’s water source from Halling Springs to Maple Springs. Both springs were in Mantua.
Knudson offered a $250 reward for apprehension and conviction of a “fire bug” setting fires in Brigham City.
A committee comprised of the bishops from six LDS wards and Reverend C. E. Fowler of the Community Presbyterian Church attended City Council meeting May 1, 1925, to protest the “desecration of the Sabbath Day by opening picture show houses.”Brigham City Minutes.
