Halloween is ON in Little Silver this year – but it’s not going to be quite the same.

In an effort to encourage everyone to respect their neighbors near and far, and the varying degrees of concern (and vulnerability) people have during the pandemic , the Borough’s governing body and emergency management officials are strongly encouraging strict compliance with the New Jersey Department of Health’s “Halloween 2020 Celebration Guidance”and CDC Guidelines

In a nutshell, if you are trick or treating, stay in your neighborhood and the close vicinity, visit homes where you are familiar with the residents, and limit the number of homes you visit. Sunnycrest, for instance, will not be barricaded as in recent years past, to discourage out-of-neighborhood residents from travelling there to trick or treat, and creation of large groups where socially distancing may be difficult or impossible. Parking will be restricted to one side of Sunnycrest only, with no parking signs within crosswalks, and near stop signs and intersections. Again, we are encouraging everyone to stay within your own neighborhood.  Please respect those who may not wish to participate – signs that can be printed and hung on your door advising whether you are participating in trick or treating, or not, can be found here, in the vestibule at Borough Hall and on the Library curbside pick up table.

Have a safe and happy Halloween.

Phone Scam Warning (pdf)
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.
