(A)   The grantee shall maintain an office conveniently located to serve the subscribers of the town.  The town shall have the right, upon reasonable request, to inspect and copy or transcribe at any time during normal business hours all books, records, maps, plans, financial records, service complaint logs, performance test results, and other like materials of the grantee kept or maintained by grantee or under its control concerning the operations, finances, affairs, transactions, or property of grantee when necessary to ascertain the grantee’s compliance with this chapter or the franchise agreement.  Access to the aforementioned records shall not be denied by the grantee on the basis that said records contain “proprietary” information.
   (B)   If any of such maps or records are not kept in the town, or upon reasonable request made available to the town, and if the town shall determine that an examination of such records is necessary or appropriate, all reasonable expenses necessarily incurred in making such examination shall be paid by grantee.
