COUNCILLORS will meet on Wednesday to decide on the council tax increase.
A special budget meeting of Kirklees Council gets under way in Huddersfield at 2pm and fierce debates are expected.
The Lib-Dem-led Cabinet has put forward proposals for a £441m budget which would lead to a council tax increase of 5.9%.
This includes the rises already determined by West Yorkshire's police and fire authorities.
The Green Party, which has a seat on the Cabinet, has put forward amendments which would lead to a 6% increase.
Labour's proposals would mean a rise of 4.1%.
Tories' say their spending plans would be achieved with a slightly lower 3.9% increase.
Party representation on the council means the budget debate could be a protracted one.
The Lib-Dems have 30 of the 72 seats, Labour has 21 and the Tories 16. There are three Green councillors, one Liberal and one British National Party.
