All selected applicants are required to complete Section 1 of federal Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) and to provide identification and either proof of U.S. citizenship or proof of authorization to work in the U.S.

In addition, the City of Daytona Beach uses E-Verify as part of the I-9 process to verify the work eligibility of all new hires.
