I promise that the information provided in this employment application (and accompanying the resume, if any) is true and complete, and I understand that any false information or significant omissions may

I authorize the investigation of all statements contained in this application (and accompanying resume, if any). I also authorize The City to contact my present employer (unless otherwise noted in this application form), past employers, and listed references. I understand that the City may request an investigative consumer report from a consumer reporting agency that includes
information as to my character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living. I understand that the investigative consumer report may involve personal interviews with my neighbors, friends, relatives, former employers, schools, and others.
