And let’s never forget College Corner, OH/IN.  It is in three counties and two states.  It has two different zip codes.  But really, it is two separate towns  -College Corner OH and West College Corner IN.  And of course Delmar and Mardel along the Delaware/Maryland state line.  Just to keep things interesting.

Minnesota has around 40 cross-county cities, most of which have just a small portion in the second county. St. Cloud is notable for being in three counties! https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/137238

Yes - a city can cover more than one county in the US. I'm not familiar with your example, but we have Bothell, WA which is in both King and Snohomish County. 

 

Best,
