Permission to restart services on Server 2008 R2 machine

I'm looking to provide afew users with permissions to manage services (stop, restart etc) on a single server.
I found some posts about using Group Policy etc however I don't see how that will work for me.
The services I want to provide access to are custom ones that have been added with print server software and I couldn't see them in GP. I also only want them to get access to this one server not to other servers in the domain.

Thanks that sounds like what I want to do however it doesn't go into any depth about the actual steps involved.

Would i create a new GPO in AD and apply it only to the server i want to provide access to?
How do I add the non-standard services so they can be controlled by Group Policy?

Add them to the local power users group on the Server that you want them to control.

Power Users would provide them more rights than i want them to have.

The server is running as a branch file server and print server. I only want them to be able to admin printers and restart servers.
Hence Print Operators group and permission to restart either particular services or all services.
