Community Services is responsible for managing the contracts and grants to urban centres for recreation and libraries; administering grants to rural organizations to encourage a vibrant rural culture; managing the FCSS funding provided by the County.
- Grants: Mountain View County provides grants to various community organizations. In the case of FCSS, Public Transportation, Community Halls, Playground, Cemetery and Rural Community Grants, Council has established a sub-committee to approve the funds given to specific organizations.
- Recreation and Library: Mountain View County offers some services indirectly through third-party providers. These include seniors' housing, solid waste collection, recreation facilities (pools, arenas, etc) and libraries. The County provides funding to these third parties as well as having Councillors sit on their boards.
