City working to discourage tobacco use in public places

Posted: Updated:
MT. PLEASANT, MI (WNEM) -

A Mid-Michigan city is moving ahead with plans to keep tobacco out of public places and parks.

Mount Pleasant’s Parks and Recreation Commission has voted to implement a no-tobacco policy this year.

City Manager Nancy Ridley tells TV5 there would be "voluntary compliance," but stronger enforcement can be used if needed.

Signs would be place to show that smoking, and use of other tobacco products, including smokeless tobacco, shouldn’t be used in public places.
