Personal information found in dumpster

Note: this story refers to the City of Cleveland, Texas – not Ohio.

Vanesa Brashier reports:

The City of Cleveland will be reviewing how it handles documents that are shared with council members after 10 job applications were found in a public recycling dumpster in Cleveland. The citizen who found the documents turned them over to the Advocate.

The applications were from people who had recently applied for the position of municipal court judge; none were hired. Each applicant’s identifying information, including Social Security and driver’s license numbers, home address, references, job history, education background and phone numbers, were listed on the document, along with the applicant’s signature.
