September 2022

Labor Day is looming as I write this, which means one thing’s certain: it’s back to school time.

So first and foremost, please think of our kids before you get behind the wheel. Red Bank Regional High School, Point Road School, Markham Place School and St. John’s Nursery School are all back in session in September.

Please drive safely.

Labor Day also brings a great concert by one of New Jersey’s best concert bands, with a Little Silver twist. Band leader John Luckenbill is Little Silver-raised, and his band has some of New Jersey finest musicians.

The John Luckenbill Pops Band is playing on Monday, Labor Day, at 7 p.m. at the Gazebo, and in the event of rain will be in the Woman’s Club. Please don’t miss it – this free concert is a real treat and is the perfect way to end the summer. Bring a blanket, some lawn chairs, and friends and family, and spend a perfect unofficial end-of-summer evening in Little Silver.

 Next, some news from around town, notice of a 9/11 presentation at the Parker Homestead, and other items.

First, August saw the completion of the reconstruction of the train crossing on White Road. As always, we appreciate everyone’s patience as NJ Transit completed the work.

In addition, the small bridge at the intersection of Point Road and Prospect was repaired in record time by Monmouth County. Thanks to both of these agencies for helping to keep our town safe.

We’ve also had some scattered utility repairs around town, which prompted the governing body to adopt an ordinance requiring repaving curb-to-curb when utility work requires excavating a significant portion of a street. Utility companies have typically worked well with the borough to repave following a street opening, and this will help us make sure that repaving is as effective as can be when openings are necessary.

Looking to current projects, we’ve begun installation of a lit cross walk, similar to those at Willow-Prospect-Kings, at the intersection of Markham and Branch. This project requires assistance from the County, and is moving forward, with the hope that installation will be complete by the start of school.

In addition, we expect that in the not-too-distant future, our talented Public Works Department will begin a reconstruction of the dock at Santelle Park, again saving the Borough significant dollars by avoiding having to hire an outside contractor.

And some good news: Little Silver accepted its auditor’s report in August, and we can report that we are in good financial shape, with no criticism from the auditor.

And that presentation? The attacks on September 11 had a profound effect on the nation, and the World Trade Center attack had a particularly strong impact on our area, with victims from Little Silver and many other surrounding communities.

To mark the anniversary, Monmouth University Professor Melissa Ziobro will deliver a talk on the terrorist attacks and their aftermath in Monmouth County at 2 p.m. on September 11 at the new Education Room at the Parker Homestead. Come learn about Monmouth County’s response that day, those who survived and were forever changed, our first responders who rushed to help, and more.

Looking back briefly, you may have been wondering about those 47 purple flags in front of Borough Hall. They symbolized each life lost to an overdose in Monmouth County alone from January 1, 2022 to April 30, 2022. International Overdose Awareness Day was August 31 – an effort to help families prevent such tragedies in the future.

We also note the August retirement of Sandy Wells as a long-time employee and volunteer at our beloved Library. Sandy will be sorely missed, though we expect to see her at the Library – perhaps continuing to volunteer? – and around town. Please wish Sandy well when you see her.  

Thanks also to the Little Silver Police department for again hosting our very well-attended National Night Out. This family-friendly community event gets bigger every year, and has become a great community gathering. Outstanding job by all involved!

On behalf of the governing body, we wish everyone a happy Labor Day, and again remind everyone that our schools open this month - take it easy behind the wheel, please. 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].
