we may not know you and have to judge your experience and abilities based upon
your application.  What you place on your application may determine if you are
interviewed.

Once you submit an application, you are responsible for notifying us of any changes
in your telephone number or other "key" information to ensure consideration.

You may apply by the use of a resume; however, all applicants are encouraged to
also submit a City of Atlantic Beach Employment Application Form (online) or (PDF)

and additional documents may be sent separately by mail or by e-mail.
