They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling.

August 2022

A bridge closure, some seriously hot, dry weather, National Night Out, a great Labor Day concert, some really cool baseball news, and more are on the radar screen as I write this at the end of July.

*****

First, however, we note with sadness the passing of former Mayor Anthony Bruno. The Bruno name is nearly synonymous with Little Silver, and Mayor Bruno was a fine example of the family’s devotion to the town.

A councilman, a mayor, a life member of the Little Silver Fire Company, and a judge – it doesn’t get much more ‘hometown hero’ than that.

Judge Bruno, who was mayor twice, served the town in many other ways as well. We would like to extend the Borough’s condolences to his family, friends and colleagues, especially those in the LSFD. Little Silver is a better place for his efforts.

May the Judge rest in eternal peace. Arrangements had not been made at this writing.

*****

We begin with a couple service announcements. First, it’s been hot enough that NJ American Water has imposed water use restrictions: homes with odd street numbers should water their lawns on odd numbered days, and homes with even numbers should do so on even numbered days.

We’re encouraging all residents to follow this instruction.

In another ‘for the good of the order’ request, we’re also asking everyone to make sure they’ve signed up with CodeRed for emergency notifications. If you haven’t done so already, visit www.littlesilver.org., and click on the CodeRed button on the left side of the home page, or pick up a registration form in borough hall.

You can also call borough hall or CodeRed directly at (866) 939-0911 for assistance.

You’ll get prompt notification of everything from serious traffic issues, to road closures, to potentially life-saving news and instructions in an emergency. The lingering pandemic and the tenth anniversary of the devastation of Superstorm Sandy serve to remind us of the importance of being in the emergency news loop.

A current bridge project is a case in point. Those who are signed up know that the small bridge at the end of Prospect Avenue at the intersection with Point Road is being replaced. The project started on July 26 and is expected to last for four weeks.

The replacement, a Monmouth County endeavor, will cause the stretch of Prospect Avenue from Willow to Point to close to traffic during that time. Please plan ahead and avoid the area whenever possible. The County tells us that they expect the project to be finished by the start of the school year.

Please also be kind to police and others who may be directing you to avoid the area, or who are assisting during a lane closure or other traffic detour that may be made necessary from everything to road paving to an auto accident. We realize you may be inconvenienced, but these folks are performing a very necessary function – and these days, in some very uncomfortable weather.

To show their appreciation for your courtesy during the years, and to help bring the community together, the Little Silver Police Department will be hosting National Night Out on August 2 from 6-9 p.m. behind Borough Hall and on the Markham Place fields. This is a great town gathering, with free food and beverages, fire department and EMS demonstrations, crime prevention tips, emergency vehicles, slides, games, a DJ, and more.

Please bring family and friends and come out to meet our hard-working, professional, and friendly community police department.

And the baseball news? Check this out: The ten and under Two River Little League 10U All Star team captured the NJ Section 3 Championship! The boys, from Little Silver and Shrewsbury, are now one of four remaining teams in New Jersey, and at this writing in late July planned to complete in the state Tournament in Bloomingdale.

Your hometown team members are Braeden Shields, Carson Christie, Hudson Sanborn, Jack Shields, Jack Reid, Jack Haarsgaard, Tyler Salvo, and Ned Dobish. Good luck, boys!

And the big band concert? The John Luckenbill Pops Band has again kindly offered to perform a free concert at the Markham Place gazebo at 7 p.m. on Monday, September 5 (Labor Day).

Mr. Luckenbill’s family has deep roots in Little Silver, and we’re fortunate to have this very accomplished band – which performs at multiple shore venues and around the state – pay us a visit. Bring a blanket or chair and come listen to one of the finest bands you’ll hear anywhere and take part in Little Silver’s rich musical history. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the Woman’s Club.

Lastly, if the summer heat’s too much for an outdoor adventure, or if indoor activities are more your thing, please don’t forget about the borough Library, located on Prospect Avenue next to Borough Hall. Air conditioning, wifi, a breezy patio, and so much more await readers of all ages. And their child-oriented offerings are second to none.

Please also remember the Parker Homestead, which is open to visitors on Saturdays, with tours led by our hard-working trustees. See the new apple orchard, learn a little about this property dating to 1650, and find out all that’s coming up at this historic landmark.

As always, borough hall is available from 8 to 4 to take your calls with questions or concerns, or I can be reached at [email protected], or at my home phone at (732) 576-8595. On behalf of the governing body, we wish you the best of everything this August. Stay cool, 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
