In our continuing effort to keep everyone fully informed during the pandemic, we provide the June 8, 2020 letter from the mayor being mailed to all our residents and businesses. From the arrival of outdoor dining, to the local COVID-19 numbers and efforts to help, to many Little Silver updates, we hope you find it informative. Please stay safe, call borough hall with any questions or concerns, and in recognition of our country’s ongoing battle against prejudice and injustice, please continue to promote peace, understanding and acceptance. We hope to return to our usual newsletter in July.
TRAIN CROSSING REPAIR SCHEDULED
We are pleased to advise that NJ Transit will be repairing the very bumpy train crossing on Silverside Avenue in the near future. Presently, work is scheduled to start on July 16, 2020, and is expected to last about 10 days. Throughout that time, the crossing will be closed, and a detour will be set up. In addition to the crossing repair, NJ Transit has agreed to extend the level crossing to accommodate a proposed future pedestrian crossing on the south side of the street, although that crossing will not be completed for some time, and will involve approval by multiple branches of government. These infrastructure projects can at times face unexpected hurdles or delays, so please keep an eye out for any scheduling changes. For now, however, please plan on finding an alternate route for any trips that would otherwise take you to this crossing, beginning July 16. We're looking forward to this improvement!
On this Memorial Day, 2020, Little Silver honors our fallen soldiers with this video ceremony. Thank you to everyone who helped put it together, and than you for recognizing the sacrifice that has preserved the freedom we enjoy.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING TAX PAYMENTS
The Tax Office is presently closed to the public, therefore here are some other ways that you can make your second quarter tax payment.
If you would like your Property Tax Bill stamped, please include with your payment. It will be stamped and mailed back to you.
Thank you for your assistance!
The April 28 letter from the mayor with town news and COVID-19 information can be found here. Among other things, it notifies everyone of a 'Light the Night' celebration to recognize and support our first responders and front line workers. Also, in keeping with the fast-moving nature of news surrounding the pandemic, since the letter was written, Sandy Hook has announced it will soon reopen at 50 percent, and state parks have now been reopened as well. Little Silver's parks, fields and trails have always been open, and we've now reopened our recycling center during the week from 8 to 2, and are planning to reopen our tennis courts. It will be a challenge with the beautiful forecast, but please continue to obey the governor's executive orders. Be well.
RECYCLING YARD OPENING MONDAY, MAY 4TH.
We are pleased to advise that our hard-working but short-staffed public works department will reopen the Recycling Yard on Monday, May 4. Its hours will be Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Residents must wear cloth facial coverings and comply with social distancing and all other aspects of the governor's orders at all times. Non-compliance that puts anyone's safety in jeopardy may result in the closing of the yard.
We understand that circumstances have left everyone with an increased recycling burden, but please use the yard only as a back-up to your regular curbside pickup, which continues as usual, per the regular schedule posted on www.littlesilver.org. Thanks to our DPW, administration, and emergency management office for getting this service up and running again!

No date has been given on when these credits/payments will resume.

IMPORTANT RECYCLING INFORMATION
Plastic bags of any type are no longer allowed in with recycling materials. This applies to both curbside pickup and drop off at the Public Works yard. Recycling materials are to be placed loose in all recycling containers or dumpsters. Plastic bags cause delays and jams of the sorting machines during processing. If plastic bags are found in any recycling load taken to the County site for disposal, the entire recycling load will be rejected at significant cost to the Borough.
If plastic bags continue to appear in the dumpsters at the Public Works yard the Borough may be forced to close the recycling area Monday thru Friday, leaving only Saturday hours available, along with your regularly scheduled curbside pickup.
Everyone’s cooperation is sincerely appreciated.
