They should fight it. There is no logical way the city can enforce anything outside of its jurisdiction. The affected parties have no representation in city government.

Go to the county, petition the state, take it to court but do not overstep the bounds of the city limits. Next thing you know, Ohio will try to impose its will on parties in West Virginia if they disagree with something.
