Amory is the latest Mississippi city to enact a smoking ban.
The board of aldermen adopted the anti-smoking ordinance on Tuesday. Aldermen had been discussing and revising the ordinance for nearly two years. The ban on smoking in all public places in the city of Amory takes effect November 10th.
The ordinance prohibits smoking in all indoor public areas and on all city-owned property.
Violators face a fine of up to $50 for the first offense and up to $250 for subsequent offenses.
