The district may own land adjacent or accessible to the navigable water developed by the district and may lease the land to any person and charge reasonable tolls, fees, or other charges.
Proceeds from the tolls, fees, or other charges may be used for maintenance and operation of the business of the district, to make the district self-supporting and financially solvent, and to return the construction cost of the improvements within a reasonable period.
The land may be located in whole or in part inside or outside the boundaries of any incorporated city, town, or village in this state, but land which is not included inside the boundaries of a city, town, or village at the time it is acquired by the district may not be annexed or included inside the boundaries of the city, town, or village without the written consent of the district evidenced by a resolution adopted by the commission.Acts 1971, 62nd Leg., p. 110, ch. 58, Sec. 1, eff.
