The latest state order regarding COVID-19, lifting certain restrictions, and in effect on Memorial Day weekend, can be found here. Little Silver follows the state orders, as it must, and imposes no additional restrictions.
The Borough of Little Silver is under contract with Realty Data Systems (RDS) to inspect a designated portion of all properties located in the Borough each year. These inspections enable the Borough to maintain accurate property records used to complete annual reassessments, which are a critical component in the fair distribution of taxes.
Portable Generator Reminders
Generators should be used in well ventilated locations outside away from all doors, windows and vent openings. Never use a generator in an attached garage, even with the door open. Place generators so that exhaust fumes can't enter the home through window, doors or other openings. Make sure to install carbon monoxide alarms in your home following manufacturer's instructions. Turn off generator and let it cool down before refueling. Never refuel a generator while it is hot.

Recycling Guide
Monmouth County Recycling has published a new “Resident’s Recycling Guide” booklet. It contains a vast amount of recycling information. Copies are available in Borough Hall and the Library.
The Little Silver Police Department has received numerous complaints regarding an aggressive and sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, which has been making the rounds throughout the country. Callers claim to be employees of the IRS, but are not. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling.
Do not give any information to unsolicited phone callers at any time. Please click below for more information.

September 2021

After a busy August, Little Silver will soon settle into an equally busy post-Labor Day routine, during which you might ask yourself: did you log as many steps, or miles, as Rocky Kane did this summer?

Read on to find out. 

First, however, a request, a reminder, and a commemoration.

The request: at the start of every academic year, we remind drivers to keep a careful eye out for students walking and biking to school. This year is no different, and with a couple infrastructure projects still in the works, please pay close attention to detours or lane closures, and if need be make extra time for travel.

In short: our kids are counting on you. Please do your part.

The reminder: the COVID numbers rose throughout the summer, in contrast to last summer, when the numbers declined. Our health department, the county, our schools, and others set up and publicize vaccine clinics, and we post the most current information on our website, Facebook page, and Constant Contact.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for on our sites, call your physician or local pharmacist to schedule a shot. And of course, as with any vaccine, follow your doctor’s advice.

And the commemoration: September 11 marks the passage of 20 years since the attack by terrorists on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the plane that was commandeered and crashed in Pennsylvania.

Little Silver and surrounding towns lost residents in the World Trade Center attack, and Little Silver is joining Monmouth County’s reflection on the evening of September 11, when the Commissioners are encouraging residents to travel to the oceanfront and help “Light the Shore” in honor of those who died, and of the sacrifice of so many who responded to the disaster. Details to follow.

Next, this has been an extraordinarily busy ‘infrastructure year’ in Little Silver. For those following the progress, sidewalk work has been completed on Little Silver Point Road, Kings Road and the county portion of Harding, with the municipal portion of Harding beginning as we go to press, followed by Seven Bridges Road; the reconstruction of North Sunnycrest is scheduled to begin shortly, if it hasn’t already begun by the time this is received; a drainage project on Fox Hill, Woodbine and Cross will begin as soon as a supply issue is resolved; and the water company has completed the installation and restoration of the main replacement in the Rumson Place/Salem neighborhood, with the water company and the town collaborating to repave the disturbed areas in September.

We thank our residents for their continued patience, as repairs or upgrades continue. Our safety-oriented town projects have been funded through a low- and no-interest state loan program to help keep our tax rate stable. To receive alerts when projects might result in delays or detours, please call borough hall or click on littlesilver.org to make sure you are signed up for emergency notifications.

In other infrastructure news, Verizon plans to add six antennas, and remove three other pieces of equipment, from the cell tower behind borough hall (on the same three sides of the existing platform as existing antennae). They advise that the additions will not significantly increase the RF output, which will remain well below federal requirements. The borough will do its own testing to make sure.

A Planning Board hearing is scheduled on September 9 on the procedures that Verizon must follow in order to obtain the proper permits; those wishing to be heard are welcome to attend.

It’s also been a busy season for our volunteer first responders. Please keep our Fire Police, EMS and Fire Department in your thoughts as they continue to respond to every call, and assist other towns, during the pandemic.

With some of their fundraising activities curtailed by COVID, we encourage anyone with the means to make an extra contribution to our volunteers this year. These services continue to train, practice, and recruit new members, and can always use your help.

By the way, you may have met some of our volunteers at August’s National Night Out, where the Little Silver Police Department held a packed community event on borough fields with food, demonstrations, a helicopter landing and more. Truly the best yet!

Looking ahead, the John Luckenbill Pops Band has kindly offered to perform a free concert at the Gazebo on Markham Place at 7 p.m. on Sunday, September 5 (Labor Day weekend). The rain date is Monday, September 6 at 7 p.m. Mr. Luckenbill’s family has deep roots in Little Silver, and the concert will memorialize his mom, who passed this year.

Bring a blanket or chair and come listen to one of the finest bands you’ll hear anywhere, and take part in Little Silver’s rich musical history.

Also, the well-known Little Silver 5K is returning in person this year on Sunday, October 3. To register for, or sponsor, this critical PTO fundraiser, go to www.littlesilver5k.com. Kids too!

And our Environmental Commission will again hold Environmental Day on October 16. This increasingly popular event at the Women’s Club will take your gently used clothing, dispose of your electronics, shred your paper, and provide various environmental seminars and information from 9-1.

So, about those steps, or miles. Richard “Rocky” Kane III (who is a Little Silver firefighter, by the way) spent a summer that we suspect is unique to Little Silver residents – he hiked the entire Appalachian Trial in one shot, from Georgia to Maine.   

Miles: 2,193.1 – in 97 days. For those of you who count steps, that’s 4,787,318 steps at a 3 mph walk, according to the conversion tables.

Rocky trained for four years in Hartshorne Woods. We hear that his interest in long distance hiking came from his experience with Little Silver Scout Troop 126, where he became an Eagle Scout. His Little Silver friends cheered him on and periodically helped to feed him during his journey. Great work!

Lastly, it’s always a treat when a new business opens in Little Silver, and we’re pleased that Pancho has opened next door to Carvel. So, in addition to its other great restaurants, Little Silver now offers Mexican fare – give them a try!

On behalf of the governing body, we wish everyone a happy end of the summer, and good health as fall approaches. As always, please call borough hall with any concerns, or contact me directly by calling my home phone at (732) 576-8595, or emailing me at [email protected].

Important Covid-19 Information - July 29, 2021

Dear Health Commissioners / Township / Borough / Village Administrators and Managers, 

I hope you all remain well and safe at this reading and continue to enjoy our NJ Summer.

COVID case activity in Monmouth and our towns has significantly increased since my last writing. The CDC has highlighted Monmouth County as an area of high COVID activity. The Governor and State Health Commissioner having confirmed most of NJ as having increased COVID activity, strongly recommend the masking of individuals again who are indoors in public spaces. We are back in high COVID Case Rate of 10.19 per 100,000 people. We are still in a Moderate COVID Activity Level Index (CALI), fortunately. We are concerned as the Delta variant has become the prominent COVID-19 variant at 74% in New Jersey.

I ask that all of you encourage people to get vaccinated against COVID, get tested if you have symptoms of COVID (even if fully vaccinated), wear masks if indoors in public spaces (even if fully vaccinated). I strongly recommend that all of the K-12 schools should return to masking for Summer School and for the Fall as well as businesses. We were hoping for a different outcome as we increase vaccinations but the level of COVID vaccine hesitancy and those not eligible to get vaccinated yet has contributed to some of the current surge. We do have vaccination clinics planned for August and September to help get more people vaccinated but we are moving again into challenging times where we need everyone’s help in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

We continue to vaccinate the homebound by way of our agreement with the VNA of Central Jersey. We are currently reaching out to Long-Term Care facilities, Schools, Monmouth University, and restaurants. As a COVID vaccine provider, we are also scheduling people interested in getting the COVID vaccine at our office in Tinton Falls. Please call (732) 493-9520. I am confident that we can reduce the COVID-19 activity if we all work together.

We can win this battle!

Yours in Health,
David A. Henry
Health Officer
