Another city mulls smoking ban
BRANDON — The Brandon Board of Aldermen is considering a ban on smoking tobacco in groceries, restaurants and retail businesses.
And Ridgeland is thinking about making its tobacco ban even tougher, forbidding smoking even on city parking lots and property next to city buildings.
The ordinance for Brandon is expected to be on the board’s April 5 agenda. If it passes, Brandon would be Mississippi’s 33rd municipality to prohibit smoking in public places.
Ridgeland passed a smoking ordinance in June 2007. The proposed new ordinance would make it illegal to use tobacco products on any city property, including in city vehicles.
