Baldwyn officials pass smokefree ordinance

By NEMS Daily Journal

BALDWYN – The Baldwyn city board voted unanimously Tuesday to adopt an ordinance to make Baldwyn a smokefree city.
Melissa Nash of the Mississippi Tobacco Free Coalition of Prentiss and Tishomingo Counties has worked for more than a year to increase public awareness of why adopting a smokefree ordinance is important to the health and well-being of residents. The Mayor’s Youth Council took up the issue as a priority, distributing information to gain support for the measure.
