The Eldora City Council amended two ordinances and approved the first reading of changes to a third at its regular meeting Monday night.

The first amended ordinance, 50.13 Failure to Abate, is in regard to anyone maintaining a nuisance such as garbage or junk vehicles. The following language was added: "Failure to abate said nuisance as prescribed by the notice shall be enough cause for removal of the junk or junk vehicle by the City. Abatement may include, but shall not be limited to repair, removal, cleaning, extermination, cutting, mowing, securing, barricading or fencing."
