Let there be light; that's what the Augusta County Board Of Supervisors said tonight... as long as it follows new guidelines.

The board voted 5-2 to approve a new lighting ordinance.

It would reduce light pollution by fitting all new commercial lighting with hoods to ensure it shines at a downward angle.

However, it would not affect existing light fixtures.
