The Stone Harbor Police Department is advising residents of a recent telephone scam which has been occurring in the Stone Harbor and Avalon area.
Local residents have been receiving phone calls from an unknown subject identifying himself/herself as a representative of the Internal Revenue Service. The “IRS” representative will then advise the resident of discrepancies in relation to their tax information. On at least one occasion the “IRS” representative told the resident local police have been contacted with respect to these tax discrepancies and that a warrant for the residents’ arrest has been issued. The call originated from (415)234-9585.
Residents are advised not to provide any of their personal information over the phone and to contact the Stone Harbor Police Department at 609-368-2111 upon receiving similar calls.
The Borough of Stone Harbor Engineer has contacted the local Utility Companies and advised of the proposed Utility & Road Construction Project to improve the following streets:
- Sunset Drive – Berkley Road to 99th
- Corinthian Drive – Berkley Road to 99th Street
- Berkley Road- Sunset Drive to Corinthian Drive
- Charles Street – Sunset Drive to Corinthian Drive
Please be advised enough time must be provided to the Utility Companies to make repairs and/or upgrades, if necessary. No Construction will begin until the Spring of 2016.
Homeowners should take this time to review their current utility services and determine if any upgrades are needed and have them scheduled. Once construction is complete the roadways will have a 5 year moratorium in place and cannot be opened for any reason.
Updates on the progress of this project will be provided when available.

The National Weather Service has posted a Coastal Flood Warning for our community for Tuesday morning, December 9th. Minor to moderate coastal flooding is expected during high tide on Tuesday morning. A coastal storm will make its way along the New Jersey coastline on Tuesday and will bring some rain, windy conditions, and coastal flooding to our community. The heaviest rain is expected to occur on Tuesday morning with strong 40mph wind gusts. Please take this opportunity to secure any objects that are subject to strong gusty winds. Never attempt to drive on any flooded street, or through any flooded intersection. If you have any emergency, please dial 911.nws-special-weather-statement
High tide will occur at the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge between Avalon and Sea Isle City at 9:31am on Tuesday and again at 10:03pm.
If you live on a street that typically experiences high water during flooding events, consider moving your vehicle out of the street to higher ground. Please continue to monitor this weather forecast and the risk of coastal flooding through traditional media outlets.
Here is the text of the Coastal Flood Warning as posted by the National Weather Service:

A coastal Flood Warning indicates that moderate or major tidal
flooding is imminent or occurring. Be prepared for rising water
levels and take appropriate action to protect life and property.
