SECTION 22500-22506



22500.  When a board determines by resolution entered upon the
minutes that any property of the district is no longer necessary for
district purposes, the district may for a valuable consideration sell
or lease the property upon terms that appear to the board to be for
the best interests of the district. Sales and leases authorized under
this section include sales and leases to the State and to cities,
counties, districts and other political subdivisions of the State.



22501.  A district may lease the right to produce any minerals or
hydrocarbons in any property held by it upon the terms the board
deems most beneficial to the district after the board has found by a
resolution entered in its minutes that the lease may be carried out
without interfering with the use of the property for district
purposes.



22502.  All conveyances and leases of district property shall be
executed by the secretary and president on behalf of the district in
accordance with a resolution of the board.



22503.  A district may sell, convey, lease, give and take options
and contracts of sale upon, and otherwise deal with property acquired
by it through a collector's deed, including sale to a former owner
or holder, on terms and at a price approved by its board. Instruments
to accomplish the same shall be executed and acknowledged by the
president and secretary.



22505.  A district may lease any of its property to the State of
California, a public agency of the State, a city, county, district,
or other political subdivision of the State, whenever such a lease
will benefit the district. Property may be so leased for monetary
consideration or other benefit to the district without publishing
notice or receiving bids if the board, by resolution entered upon its
minutes, determines that the leasing is for the best interests of
the district and will not interfere with the use of the property by
the district for district purposes.



22506.  When a board determines by resolution entered upon the
minutes that any property of the district may be leased for a use or
purpose that will not interfere with or be inconsistent with district
uses or purposes, the district may, for a valuable consideration,
lease the property for such use or purpose upon terms that appear to
the board to be for the best interests of the district.
