Mrs. Anderson and her counsel were also responsible for the purchase of the first water system for one dollar, the first city license plates, appointing the first voter registration board, organizing the first city cleanup day, the first speed limit signs, and purchasing the building which presently houses the City Hall and post office.

Mrs. Anderson and her counsel were also honored on national television on the CBS evening news with Walter Cronkite in 1974 for these accomplishments.
