According to Mastrogiovanni, who owns the Corner News, the scouts were selling on her private property next to her store. Permits are required only on city-owned land.

OK, my first response was going to be that the Cub Scout leader should have understood the law and shown the boys the way to follow the law, but it sounds like she did.
I was a Scout leader (both Cub and Boy Scout level) for years with my boys, and we always made sure we followed the laws and ordanances where we were doing any activity.
Ms. Mastrogiovanni should appeal if there is an avenue to show the boys the correct way to resolve a conflict like this.
There is a saying in BSA leader training: "camping is the carrot". Scouting is really about teaching life skills. The fun stuff is the distraction that makes them want to do it.
