Buying a home with slight city easement encroachment

We are closing on a home but have discovered that our back fence is on a city easement. All of our neighbors have the same back fence line so I suppose we are all on it. Fence removal isn’t that big of a deal to us, but apparently a few inches of the shed and about 8in of concrete near the shed is also on the easement.

Our lawyer does not feel that this is a big deal. What I’m wondering is if the city needed to use the area for whatever reason, besides removing the fence would they make us tear down the shed/drill up the concrete just bc it’s encroaching? Or would they let us leave it if whatever work they were doing didn’t require use of the 8in wide area with concrete?
