  (2)  Concessions may be granted or leased on, along, or between properties of the district for businesses serving people using the resources or facilities of the district, for definite periods, whenever the board deems it for the best interest and general welfare of the district.  All sums so collected shall be placed in the general fund.  No concession or privilege shall be granted or leased without public notice and competitive bidding therefor submitted in writing and accepted by the board of trustees, all in the same manner as provided in this section for contracts for necessary works.
