All information contained in this application is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. I understand that misrepresentations or omissions of any kind may result in denial of employment or be cause for subsequent dismissal if I am hired.
I authorize the city to investigate my responses on this application and contact any or all of my former employers or any individuals familiar with me or my employment background for the purpose of verifying any information I have provided and/or for the purposes of obtaining any information, whether favorable or unfavorable, about me or my employment. I voluntarily and knowingly fully release and hold harmless any person or organization that provides information pertaining to me or my employment. This report may contain information about me concerning my character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living, among other relevant things. This information may be obtained from a variety of sources, including but not limited to, government agencies, past employers, personal interviews with those who know me and others.
I understand that upon receiving a job offer, a criminal background check, a physical examination and drug screening may be requested. (Note: If this is a job requirement, you will be notified). I also understand that upon employment, I must furnish proof of eligibility to live and work legally in the United States.
I also understand that the City will require me within six months of employment to reside no more than twenty (20) miles from City Hall. An employee's failure to live within the boundaries of the residency requirements may constitute grounds for immediate dismissal.
Regardless of whether or not I become employed by the City, I recognize that this application is not and should not be considered a contract of employment. I understand that employment at the City is on an at-will basis and that my employment may be terminated with or without cause, and without notice, at any time, at my option or the company's, unless specifically provided otherwise in a written employment contract. I further understand that no City employee or representative has the authority to enter into a contract regarding the duration of terms and conditions of employment other than an officer or official of the City, and then only by means of a signed, written document.
