I submitted my application, but I forgot to attach my documents. What do I do?
Once an application is submitted, it cannot be updated. You will need to submit a new application with the documents attached. We will always use the most recent version of your application. If you are unable to resubmit, please email HR@orovalleyaz.gov to inquire about other options.
