The Community Services Council is an incorporated body of citizens designed to assist the Councillor of Recreation and Cultural Services. The CSC advises, assists and makes recommendations to this Councillor on matters pertaining to cultural and recreational needs and activities in the Town. As a non-profit organization, the CSC searches and applies for grants and then appoints personnel to administer the provincial and federal grants  made available to the community.

This group examines financial reports of cultural and recreational groups of the Town who receive funding to recommend their continued support. Their decision is passed on to the Town Council for consideration.
