WOODINVILLE--With a new parks and recreation department, an additional police sergeant, and "the busiest year for building," running the city next year will cost about $9.5 million, according to Jim Katica, city clerk and treasurer.
   "I think the City Council is putting a great deal of resources into parks and recreation, developing the Jerry Wilmot Park with money collected from donations, but also $770,000," Katica said.
   A public hearing regarding property taxes, revenue sources, and the six-year capital improvement program is scheduled for Nov. 12. The entire budget will be addressed on Nov. 25.
