Letter to Residents, June 8, 2020


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.

April 28, 2020 Letter

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.

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 Thanks to our DPW, administration, and emergency management office for getting this service up and running again!
