SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Southaven is one of two cities in DeSoto County that has not adopted any type of smoking ban for restaurants and other public places in the city.

The local chapter of the Mississippi Tobacco Free Coalition is out to change this.

On Tuesday, The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1lBzYQc ) members of the group attended the city’s Board of Aldermen meeting, where they asked officials to adopt a citywide smoke-free ordinance.

Mayor Darren Musselwhite recommended to the seven-member board that the city begin the process by reviewing smoke-free ordinances that other cities have adopted.

The board agreed to form a committee to review other nonsmoking laws and draft an ordinance. The board’s ordinance committee will then bring the proposed law back before the board by next month’s meeting.
