Funding for road repairs will be decided at a new meeting for the Huddersfield area.
The town’s District Committee will meet for the first time on Tuesday.
It replaces the former Area Committee and will be a key part in how Kirklees Council devolves powers and services in the future.
Chaired by Clr Naheed Mather, a Dalton Labour councillor, the public meeting will be a chance for the public to ask questions of councillors, get involved in budget consultations and help re-shape the council.
Among the initial decisions for the District Committee will be funding for community projects.
Capital funding of £26,000 is set to be ploughed into Newsome ward. It will largely fund road repairs in Portland Place, Newsome Road, Springwood Street, Armitage Bridge and elsewhere in the ward. However, £1,000 of it will be put towards cooking facilities for the Highfields Community Orchard.
Lindley Carnival is in line for a £3,544 boost towards the cost of insurance, portable toilets, staging, barriers and promoting the event.
The Lindley Community Running Event could get £2,000 towards the public run, which takes place on Carnival weekend.
The money will help fund the organisation of the run which costs £5,000.
Councillors will also consider changing the management of the Dalton ward community mini-bus, which runs from the Greenfields Family Centre to the Netherhall Learning Campus.
Kirklees says the Family Centre, which managed the day to day bus service, does not currently have the capacity to manage and develop it, so it will transfer to Netherhall to be used by the school. It will remain available for Dalton communtiy groups to use.
Also on the agenda is a discussion about Kirklees Council’s budget. The authority is looking to make £69m of savings in the next three years that is expected to see sweeping changes in what service the authority runs.
The Huddersfield District Committee is at 7pm on Tuesday at Huddersfield Town Hall and is open to all to attend.
