(CBC/CNN) - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is scheduled to return to work June 30 after seeking help for alcohol abuse.

In a letter to the Toronto city clerk Ford asks that his office locks be restored on that date.

The mayor has been in rehab since announcing he would take a leave of absence last month.

That decision came hours after a new video surfaced that allegedly showed him smoking crack cocaine.

Despite the controversy, Ford is planning to seek a second term in office.
