Explanation:
I think you could translate 'concejalía' as 'committee' in the sense of a local council committee and 'CSC' often stands for 'Centro Socio Cultural' in this kind of context but I'd need to see more of your text to be sure that this is right in this particular case.

agree  Hebe Martorella: why not Council in the first case???
3 hrs
  -> I went for 'committee' as I decided that 'council' would refer to the whole body whereas there might be lots of different 'concejalias'/'committees'. See http://www.ayto-mostoles.es/SERVICIOS CONCEJALIAS/Concejalia...
