The council decided Tuesday to hire a moderator and convene a citizen panel in hopes of settling differences between two sides arguing about whether Boulder should have a formal sister-city relationship with Nablus on the West Bank.Others have said formal ties would make it appear that Boulder was taking sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.Boulder spokeswoman Sarah Huntley said the city has received about 200 emails, some supporting the sister-city ties, some opposed, and others commenting on whether Boulder should try to resolve the dispute.Cherin said she's optimistic Boulder would eventually formalize the relationship because the project has done all that the city requires.
