With the Woodinville Chamber of Commerce gaining momentum for its new visitors center, the Woodinville City Council voted 6-0 to approve $40,000 in funding for 1995 and 1996 to help provide services that promote tourism in the city.
   Of the $40,000, $8,000 will be for the remainder of 1995 to help fund an events calendar for 1996 and other activities the chamber has been developing.
   The remainder of the balance will go towards promoting the City of Woodinville on a regional level through many media, including advertising, lure brochures, and a shopping guide listing area businesses and tourist attractions, such as Molbak's, Columbia, Ste. Michelle, and Redhook.
