Welcome to the Borough of Little Silver, a community of approximately 6,000 residents in eastern Monmouth County.  Little Silver has an outstanding school system, is a stone's throw to New Jersey's beaches, and has direct train service to Manhattan.  Our town has a proud history, with the Lenni Lenape tribe among its earliest settlers, and is friendly, prosperous and vibrant.  We invite you to explore our updated site, which includes useful features and up-to-date information in a user-friendly format designed to provide our residents and those interested in Little Silver with important information.  If you have any suggestions for improving the site, we would like to hear from you.   

Notice:  Monmouth County and its 53 municipalities have been working on the update of the Monmouth County Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan since August of 2012. The first county wide plan was completed in 2009. The plan is a documented evaluation of the natural hazards to which a community is susceptible and the extent to which these events will occur. It identifies an area’s vulnerability to the effects of natural hazards and the goals, objectives and actions required to minimize future loss. Mitigation is preparation and planning now to reduce loss of life and property later, by lessening the impacts of future disasters.

This plan allows the county and the participating municipalities to apply for pre and post disaster mitigation grant funding through FEMA.

The Draft Monmouth County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan will be available for review beginning October 17, 2014. Residents can view the draft plan for the county and its 53 municipalities by visiting:, click on the OEM icon and select Hazard Mitigation Planning.

Phone scam alert
Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office reports people receiving phone calls from scammers posing as JCP&L employees. The calls threaten to shut off power at a residence or business unless direct payment is made using a pre-paid debit card. The call can look very convincing, with the CallerID being spoofed to indicate it is coming from a JCP&L phone number. The JCP&L phone scam is just one of many scams, such as a similar IRS scam and countless other ploys. Anyone who suspects they have received a scam call should contact the Police Department.

Backup Generator Tips from JCP&L
Backup generators can provide an emergency power supply, helping to keep important equipment running during a power outage. It’s important to make sure generators are properly installed and operated to prevent health and safety risks. Before installing a backup generator, follow all instructions in the manufacturer's written documentation, such as an operating manual, and all local building codes, especially regarding placement of the unit and safe electrical connections (check for local regulations by clicking “Planning and Zoning” on the top menu bar of this site).

Register for Electric Service Interruptions Updates
JCP&L customers who use electrically operated life support equipment or depend on private well water can register for updates on potential interruptions to their electric service, such as weather-related outages during the summer storm season.

Taxes can now be paid online by clicking on the blue tab "Pay Taxes Online" on the left menu bar. Please note, convenience fees apply, as listed on the payment page.
