Councillors have agreed to accept a pay freeze. All 69 members of the Huddersfield-based Kirklees authority will receive basic allowances of Â£12,566, plus extras for other duties, for the 2013-14 financial year.
Coun Mehboob Khan (Lab) gets an additional Â£25,155 for his role as council leader. Deputy leader Coun David Sheard gets an extra Â£18,866.
Cabinet members, including Batley Westâ€™s Coun Shabir Pandor, receive Â£12,274 on top of their basic allowance.
Party leaders, such as Tory chief Coun Robert Light and Lib Dem boss Coun Kath Pinnock, will be paid an extra Â£9,820.
The pay scales are set by an independent review panel. The last time councillors got a wage rise was in 2009/10.
