The Health Officer, after proper identification, shall be permitted to enter at any reasonable time, upon any private or public property where vending machines or commissaries are operated, or from which the machines are otherwise serviced, for the purpose of determining compliance with the provisions of this chapter. The operator shall assure that the Health Officer has access to the interior of food vending machines.
   (C)   Notification of inspection findings. Whenever an inspection is conducted, the Health Officer shall record the findings on a paper or electronic report. A copy of the completed report shall be provided to the person in charge of the vending operation after the inspection has been completed. The completed report shall constitute an official notice of findings. It is a public document that shall be made available for public disclosure to any person who requests it according to law.
