    In addition to the powers and authority now possessed by it, the board of trustees of any sanitary district organized under this Act shall have the power by majority vote:
    (1) To lease from any public building commission created pursuant to the provisions of the Public Building Commission Act, approved July 5, 1955, and as amended from time to time, any real or personal property for the purpose of securing office or other space for its administrative corporate functions for a period of time not exceeding 40 years;
