The balance of the borough is being worked on through the weekend. 

During the Borough's most recent phone call with JCP&L, the electric company said that the snow storm slowed its recovery efforts, but that it has since continued working in all areas of the Borough. JCP&L cannot advise as to a full completion date or when remaining streets will be reached at this time. The company asks that anyone with specific issues it wants addressed should continue to contact JCP&L at 1-888-544-4877.

Power By Sunday Resident, actually I was being a little sarcastic about the bill being lower, but your point is well taken.
Dan November 09, 2012 at 07:36 PM
So, wonder if jcp&l is going to change Friday to Sunday with their magic spreadsheets

What is the current status? The letter and street list addressed Nov. 8-9. Do all those areas now have power and what is the plan for the "balance" of little silver?
Pam Jennings November 09, 2012 at 11:25 PM
What happened to Prodpect Ave. it was on the list and.now gone. Why is this still an issue if there are so many crews around but not visible? This must be addressed after power is restored end.
Michael Fissell November 10, 2012 at 12:48 AM
Parts of Prospect now restored. Crest Dr now restored. Not sure about other areas.
e.d. November 10, 2012 at 12:58 AM
Prospect Ave. is back! Thanks to the good people of Alabama Power & Light for restoring our power and my sanity!
Michael Fissell November 10, 2012 at 01:12 AM
Yes, I forgot to say my thanks to the boys from Alabama Power & Light for restoring our power. I spoke with a line supervisor who came over to ask me why I was standing there watching them with just a tee shirt on and I said after little heat and all this cold I was warm watching them repair the lines. HE STATED and I do this in CAPS FOR EFFECT: OUR UTILITY POLES ARE IN VERY POOR SHAPE. THE WORST HE HAS SEEN IN MANY OF THESE CRISES THAT HE HAS PARTICIPATED IN. Enuf said!!!!

Still cold and dark for about a dozen of us on willow drive...lights to the left of me...lights to the right. Utility trucks drive past our houses all day but none stop. Out for 12 days now...maybe 13 will be our lucky number!
Lisa Travis November 10, 2012 at 03:14 AM
Hi still no sign of help for us on willow drive! Haven't seen one truck stop to inspect -multiple wires down.
Michael Megill November 10, 2012 at 03:55 AM
Lippincott and surrounding area is still out, Congrats to all who have been restored. Hopefully we will have it by Sunday, most importantly RBR has power and will be open on Monday. Thankfully I have a generator! Who needs JCPL! And, our RBR Bucs defeated Barnegat tonight 13 to 0 under the nice bright lights. Great job boys and coaches.
happy camper November 10, 2012 at 04:13 AM
I just got my power back tonight....they are working hard, 16 hour shifts, 21,000 plus teees removed, 600 poles replaced.....come on people noone can work magic that fast.
sandy tomasello November 10, 2012 at 12:37 PM
My power was restored Thursday night thanfully, as I stated yesterday. I personally thanked the linemen crew from Missouri . They are the ones who are popping every one on!!! Not JCPL !!! They were all over Red Bank yesterday, I'm sure they were here in Little Silver, I just didn't see them. The bottom line here was.... This was a huge disaster, our little towns were not prepared for such a crisis. We needed help. As did everyone. Look at Long Island, theses people were on the news last night begging for power. They are telling them next week!
Lisa Travis November 10, 2012 at 12:48 PM
Can we please get an updated list of streets?
disgruntled resident November 10, 2012 at 03:45 PM
Neff, on a scale From 1 to 10. one being the worst way to handle the power situation and ten being the best I would have to give you a negative 10. Good job neff on winning a popularity contest. You don't have what it takes to be mayor. Resign, to save your self from impending embarrassment. Thanks. This is what happens when we elect officials that just do it because they still think they are in school. I'm not sugar coating anything. You deserve all the negative scrutiny. You dropped the call on this one.
rene November 10, 2012 at 03:53 PM
I'm tired of everyone telling me it could be worse...I've seen it...I GET it...it could be worse...but it SHOULD be better!
disgruntled resident November 10, 2012 at 03:58 PM
The only why it could be worse is if I was dead. And I would prefer death to this bs. My house was FLOODED and we still don't have power and The crawl space is flooding again. Makes this neff's last term in office. The citizens of little silver deserve better.
rene November 10, 2012 at 04:05 PM
There was a group of kids-about 20 teenagers-walking down willow drive last night at about 8:30...just hanging out on a Friday night. I have no problem there...the problem was that they walked right over the downed wires that litter my street. Please tell your kids to stay away from areas that are still dark...we don't want anyone getting hurt. By the way, willow drive is a major route for kids walking to and from school. Point road and Markham. I understand that school will be open on Monday.
rene November 10, 2012 at 04:21 PM
An updated list of streets would be nice.
LS Resident November 10, 2012 at 06:17 PM
Mayor Neff - I have family living on Point Rd and that were just told by utility workers they would not be turning on the electric to their home due to the damage to surrounding houses. This news is devastating. How are people supposed to rebuild and move on from this storm without power. Please contact JCP&L, Governor Christie and our state officials to get this resolved. This situation is a complete mess.
Thomas November 10, 2012 at 11:15 PM
13 days and counting.....the numbers tell the story
rene November 11, 2012 at 12:09 AM
Willow drive is finally back...for the rest of you still out...can't be long now!
Thomas November 11, 2012 at 12:43 AM
This site is magical. Leave a commet at 6:15 and get power at 7:00. Priceless.
Sarah Jindal November 11, 2012 at 01:44 AM
A bunch of trucks showed up, a bunch of trucks left, still no power. So much for the promise that we would be restored by this evening. I'd be happier with no news at all than constantly getting my hopes up based on misinformation only to be consistently letdown.
Kathy Gledhill November 11, 2012 at 01:55 AM
Sarah-That is what happened to us before we got power back. The trucks came to assess the problem ahead of time. Not sure what happened between the time they came to assess and the actual restoration since it happened overnight while I was staying with friends who had power. But hopefully this is a good sign!
Kathy Gledhill November 11, 2012 at 01:58 AM
I am told that the out of town utility companies are appalled at the issues that exist here, not the least is JCP&L which has no clue how to handle emergencies, not to mention the age of our utility poles. Also, it is really important that residents who have older trees take care of them (e.g. pruning, removal, fertilization) so that these trees do not fall on power lines during future storms.
Sarah Jindal November 11, 2012 at 02:51 AM
Kathy - I hope you're right! Trying to remain optimistic after almost two weeks of raised expectations.
disgruntled resident November 11, 2012 at 10:58 PM
neff, your incompetence is truly remarkable. Mr. neff is now advising our lovely local police department to stop contractors trying to demo flood damage homes, I am truly amazed on how you even got elected into office. This disasters sheds light on how corrupted our local officials truly are. And another thing, the Little silver police department and New Jersey state troopers have been some of the nastiest human-beings i have every encountered in my life, they were highly irritable, and don't want to even answer the most simplest of questions, these public servants should be ashamed of how they carried them selves during this state of emergency. On the other hand I wanted to thank the Mississippi state troopers for being the real upholders of the public, they where kind, patient, and even made me crack a smile in these trying times. The local populace really need to take a step back and take the appropriate actions against our local police department, and our local community governance. Expect some questions at the next town hall meeting, I would love to hear all your excuses.
Michael Fissell November 11, 2012 at 11:08 PM
Same comment was made to me by a line supervsior from Alabama Power. Our utility poles are in very poor shape according to him.
Jennifer November 11, 2012 at 11:42 PM
LS Resident, you may want to call or go to the Boro Hall. A neighbor told us tonight that our electrian or homeowners needs to go to the Red Bank Boro Hall and basically get some sort of work permit for the electrical/JCP&L Box or meter on the house. JCP&L is concerned with fires starting from damaged panels. Had our neighbor told us we'd have no clue...but he said the lady he spoke to at the LS boro Hall was extremely helpful. Its goin to be awhile before we see power, hope its better for you. (sorry so tired I cannot spell)
Peter W Bennett November 16, 2012 at 12:42 AM
For those of you who would like to hear what happened with JCP&L and its poor, substandard communication to its customers and internally today, please go to http://littlesilver.patch.com/articles/your-neighborhood-gallery-4c66706b#photo-12176288
