As I understand it, one side is saying the matter is moot, because they amended the law.
Yes, but there's an exception to the mootness doctrine called Capable of Repetition, Evading Review. I'll leave a detailed explanation to the lawyers, but the idea is that the city is trying to evade review, but still has ability and intention to harm plaintiffs at a later time.
