Easements, Deeds and Encroachments

The District Board of Directors may agree by resolution to accept a deed conveying fee simple title to real property or some interest in real property to the District. The Board of Directors of District may also authorize by resolution the execution of a Grant Deed by which the District conveys all or a portion of its interest in real property to a third party, by sale or exchange of said real property.
