Perth Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas, joined Mike on Weekdays to talk about what’s happening in the city of Perth.

Perth is becoming a home for exciting events and attractions. With the success of the Winter Festival, we can expect more exciting events in the coming months include the Christmas Lights, music, art and pagaents! Perth’s new initiatives will help those struggling with homelessness. The opening of both men and women safe shelters will assist the growing number of those suffering homelessness.

Everyone is aware that there is a homelessness crisis through-out the state and indeed our city due to the rental crisis…our safe space is for those who find themselves out on the street and out in the cold…while they are waiting for a permanent solution or somewhere where they can call home.”

Basil also shared his Olympics experience. For him the highlight of the games was witnessing Australia win gold in a variety of different sports. If you would like to know about what’s happening the City of Perth you can head to their website. Listen to the full chat below
