Will a wildcard SSL certificate work with a new website in an existing domain?

I'm building a big web app for a municipal client and the app requires the HTTPS protocol. My municipal IT liaison tells me that a "wildcard SSL certificate" already exists for the city's DNS domain and is installed on the IIS server.

Will the wildcard SSL certificate work for the new site?
If so, is the setup process as simple as referencing the certificate when I set up the site binding? (See below.) Or is there more to it than than that? I'm happy to hire a sub to walk me through the process if there's some trickiness involved.

Two sites with the same certificate can be tricky because of the bindings (they like to bind to one address each)
If you are using IIS7 you can see some good tips on how to use them here:

That should solve your issue.
