Little Silver Mayor Robert C. Neff, Jr. told a crowd of about 100 residents gathered at Monday night's Borough Council meeting that the borough was unable to stop the borough-wide revaluation of all properties.
"It's not in the borough's power to put it on hold," he said of the state and county mandate that Little Silver revaluate all properties. "This is a train that left the station more than a year ago."
Most of the residents who spoke during the almost three-hour meeting identified themselves as owning waterfront property in Little Silver and were opposed to the revaluation.
Neff, who's been out of his own home for three months after it flooded during the storm, added, "We feel your pain, we know what you're dealing with."
