Mayor Fishburn spent considerable time dealing with water problems. The water master requested help enforcing the Irrigation Water Ordinance and distributing water tickets. Water users were notified that proper head gates and culverts must be erected.
City officials approved installation of a drinking fountain in the cemetery, allotted funds for increasing the City’s water supply and extending its water mains, and appropriated $16,000 to buy a fire truck. By 1913 the LDS Church had deeded the MIA Reading Room to the City, and Mayor Fishburn applied to the Carnegie Commission for funds to establish a new Carnegie library in Brigham City. Erection of the new library was well underway when Fishburn left office in 1914.
