A separate application form is required for each position for which you are applying. Resumes may be attached to the application form; however, all of the information requested in the application form must still be completed. Resumes will not
be considered without a completed employment application.
Due to retention schedules the City Secretary's Office retains applications for a period of two years, unless an applicant is hired. In that instance the application becomes part of the personnel file. The City Secretary's Office does not retain applications and/or resumes on file for future job vacancies. Please complete and submit a new application, which includes the correct job title for each position in which are applying.
The original application will need to be submitted when applying for any open position. The City Secretary's Office does not make copies, so please make copies before you turn in your application. If a closing date is listed for a position, the completed application must be received at the City Secretary's Office no later than 5:00 pm on the specified date. Applications postmarked by the closing date will be accepted. Faxed forms will also be accepted as long as the copy is legible.
The City Secretary's Office screens all applications to determine if the applicant meets the minimum qualifications for the position. Applications meeting the minimum qualifications are then submitted to the appropriate department for further processing. Upon review by the hiring department the City Secretary's Office will schedule interviews for those applicants best qualified for the open position.
All information contained on the application, resume and any attachments is subject to verification. Additional background verifications, which include a criminal history record check, may be performed on applicants.
All employment is contingent upon passing a post-offer drug and alcohol test. Additional and more stringent background verifications and requirements are required for police positions.
