Place generators so that exhaust fumes can't enter the home through window, doors or other openings. Make sure to install carbon monoxide alarms in your home following manufacturer's instructions. Turn off generator and let it cool down before refueling. Never refuel a generator while it is hot.

Recycling Guide
Monmouth County Recycling has published a new “Resident’s Recycling Guide” booklet. It contains a vast amount of recycling information. Copies are available in Borough Hall and the Library.
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.

Message from the Mayor

As usual in January, the Mayor’s Message will be short to make room for lots of start-of-the-year information. Please call Borough Hall or visit or our Facebook page to find out about upcoming events or other town information.


  1. We were sad to learn of the death of Joan Peer in December. Joan was a long-time volunteer and a former captain of the then-First Aid Squad, and volunteered in other capacities as well. Please keep her husband, Judge Norman Peer, and her children and grandchildren, in your thoughts and prayers.
  2. At this writing at the end of December, the number of new COVID-19 cases continues to spike, here and elsewhere. We encourage everyone to stay abreast of the news, and to follow your doctor’s advice when it comes to vaccinations, boosters, testing and masking. All borough buildings are open and all departments are fully functioning, but the Borough continues to follow CDC guidelines, and is considering converting its annual January reorganization meeting to remote participation only given that it is often crowded. The situation is fluid, so that may change.
  3. The Borough will be preparing for its 100th birthday in 2023. We look forward to including every facet of Little Silver in the celebration, and will form a committee to organize the observance. Those interested in serving, or contributing to the effort, should call borough hall directly, or email council member Stephanie Brannagan at [email protected]
  4. Please shovel or salt your sidewalk as may be called for by inclement weather. The town clears some school and main walkways, but cannot clear the majority of our sidewalks, especially with the addition of several sidewalks in 2021. Likewise, please remove cars and any limbs or brush from the street when snow is forecast, as required to make way for plowing. And if you’ve got a fire hydrant nearby, please help our volunteer fire department by clearing any snow cover.
  5. Please be sure you are signed up for emergency alerts, or give a New Year’s gift to a neighbor or friend and make sure they are signed up. Go to and click on Emergency Services, and then Two River Alert – Code Red Notifications, or call 866-939-0911 or borough hall for assistance.
  6. And lastly, please remove all valuables and lock your cars when not in use. Our police advise that making our town less attractive to thieves will keep us all safer.

On behalf of your council members – President Mike Holzapfel, Don Galante, Corinne Thygeson, Chris Smith, Kevin Brennan and Stephanie Brannagan – and your entire Borough Team, we hope your holiday season was healthy, merry and bright, and we wish all of you a happy and safe New Year!

Robert C. Neff Jr.

Mayor, Borough of Little Silver

Important Covid-19 Information - July 29, 2021

Dear Health Commissioners / Township / Borough / Village Administrators and Managers, 

I hope you all remain well and safe at this reading and continue to enjoy our NJ Summer.

COVID case activity in Monmouth and our towns has significantly increased since my last writing. The CDC has highlighted Monmouth County as an area of high COVID activity. The Governor and State Health Commissioner having confirmed most of NJ as having increased COVID activity, strongly recommend the masking of individuals again who are indoors in public spaces. We are back in high COVID Case Rate of 10.19 per 100,000 people. We are still in a Moderate COVID Activity Level Index (CALI), fortunately. We are concerned as the Delta variant has become the prominent COVID-19 variant at 74% in New Jersey.

I ask that all of you encourage people to get vaccinated against COVID, get tested if you have symptoms of COVID (even if fully vaccinated), wear masks if indoors in public spaces (even if fully vaccinated). I strongly recommend that all of the K-12 schools should return to masking for Summer School and for the Fall as well as businesses. We were hoping for a different outcome as we increase vaccinations but the level of COVID vaccine hesitancy and those not eligible to get vaccinated yet has contributed to some of the current surge. We do have vaccination clinics planned for August and September to help get more people vaccinated but we are moving again into challenging times where we need everyone’s help in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

We continue to vaccinate the homebound by way of our agreement with the VNA of Central Jersey. We are currently reaching out to Long-Term Care facilities, Schools, Monmouth University, and restaurants. As a COVID vaccine provider, we are also scheduling people interested in getting the COVID vaccine at our office in Tinton Falls. Please call (732) 493-9520. I am confident that we can reduce the COVID-19 activity if we all work together.

We can win this battle!

Yours in Health,
David A. Henry
Health Officer
