The trustees of a reclamation district or a county treasurer or other public officer acting as trustee for a reclamation district or other district shall have the right to expend funds of the district, including rentals collected and moneys received by the trustees of the district from lease of or for use or occupation of any land referred to in Sections 51750 to 51757, inclusive, of this code, in such amounts that may be necessary for any of the purposes mentioned in this section.
