    It’s already illegal to smoke at city parks and ball fields and in city buildings and vehicles.

    A pending amendment to the city code of ordinances will soon outlaw all tobacco products at city parks. At the recommendation of the Mills County Public Health Office (MCPH), the city has agreed to amend its smoking / tobacco ordinance and replace signage at Glenwood Lake Park and Hiley-Kiwanis Park. Current signs indicate the parks “smoke free” as mandated by the Smoke Free Air Act of 2008.
