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.

March 2023

The revival of a Little Silver business group, some home-grown interior reconfiguration, a toast for the town, the return of a family-fun fundraising party and more animate our town at this blustery time of year.

We’ll also offer a yearly spring clean-up reminder and tell you about two nice state-wide recognitions for an employee and a commission.


With so much going on, however, we want to pause first to recognize the passing of two residents who will be dearly missed.

Lizzie Gilmour worked with the children at St. John’s Nursey School and was a member of the Little Silver Fire Company. We mourn her death at such a young age in February, and extend our condolences to her parents, Lisa and former Councilman David Gilmour, and Lizzie’s brother Tyler.

Please also keep in your thoughts and prayers the family of Barbara Ann Leckstein, a former Board of Adjustment member and beloved wife of long-time Planning Board attorney Michael Leckstein. Our condolences to Mike and their three sons, Marc, David and Jeffrey, on the passing of Barbara in February.

These long-time Little Silver residents and servants leave us better people for having known them. Please offer their family members a kind word when you see them.


As we move into March, don’t forget to get your tickets to the St. Patrick’s Day party at the Little Silver Firehouse on March 11. This family-friendly party is back after a three-year absence due to the pandemic.

And if you’ve been accumulating old sneakers, papers, gently-used clothing, or electronics, Environmental Day returns on March 25 – the same day as the Easter Egg Hunt.

Plus, on March 19, we’ll host a toast to Little Silver’s official 100th birthday at the Parker Homestead – a kickoff to the big celebration on June 24.

Details of these upcoming events are elsewhere in this newsletter.


At Borough Hall, we’re doing a little reconfiguring, with our planning department moving from its cramped space to the Ayers Room, and the planning department’s current location becoming a meeting room. Thanks to Councilman Kevin Brennan for donating some office furniture to complete the change, and to our skilled Public Works team for being able to do this work in house.

Along with the improved space, we’ve put in motion some significant improvements to our technological capabilities, with an eye toward empowering our employees and better serving the public. In addition, a significant cost-saving project, much of it funded by NJNG, will result in improved and more environmentally friendly HVAC service in Borough Hall and the Woman’s Club.
