Dear Borough Residents,

The severity of the COVID-19 pandemic is increasing throughout the state and country, as well as within Little Silver.  With the increase in infections, hospitalizations and deaths, we all need to redouble our efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus.

The Little Silver Office of Emergency Management, as well as the governing body cannot overemphasize the importance and value of following all recommendations by the CDC as well as the State Department of Health inclusive of masking, social distancing, symptom monitoring and hand hygiene.  Everyone’s attention to these recommendations is critical to the safety of our community.

COVID-19 testing information can be found at the following:

2020 was a difficult year and 2021 is starting in similar fashion.  Although we all may feel COVID fatigue, the virus continues to infect more and more people within our own small community.  It remains everyone’s responsibility to do their part to stop the spread of this deadly virus and to keep our loved ones, our neighbors, and ourselves healthy and safe.

-Little Silver Office of Emergency Management

 


Mayor's New Year Poem

The Borough Council is kind enough to indulge Mayor Bob Neff in reciting some home-grown poetry at its yearly reorganization meetings. This year's meeting took place on January 4, 2021, at which time the Council, and the poem, recognized many of Little Silver's heros who are helping us through the pandemic, and looked forward to a bright 2021. Happy New Year everyone! The poem can be found here.

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.
