SENATOBIA, Miss. (AP) - The city of Senatobia will soon join more than 35 other Mississippi cities to go smoke-free in public buildings.
Mayor Alan Callicott Callicott tells The Commercial Appeal that he is hopes to have an ordinance drafted and adopted within the next 30 to 60 days. Senatobia plans to base its law on ordinances enacted by other cities.
Aldermen Don Clanton, Lana Nail, Penny Hawks Frazier and Michael Cathey all voted last week to draft an ordinance to ban smoking in workplaces, restaurants and retail stores. Mike Putt cast the lone dissenting vote.
Mississippi Tobacco Free Coalition project director Linda Wallace has played a key role in promoting smoking bans in DeSoto and Tate counties.
