HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - Holly Springs will soon ban smoking in buildings that are open to the public. That includes restaurants, stores and other commercial spaces.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1iiiYiO ) that aldermen voted 3-2 Tuesday to set the smoke-free ordinance that takes effect in 30 days.

It is modeled on local laws in dozens of other Mississippi cities.

Alderman Tom Liddy, who’s a pharmacist, proposed the ban. He says there was opposition from a few businesses and local residents.
