Ice storm debris cleanup is about 12 per cent complete.
At a press conference today, mayor Rob Ford said that 20 of 160 zones have been fully cleared of debris.
"I'm very, very pleased with the progress," mayor Ford said.
"I want to assure our residents that the City of Toronto has the situation under control," he added.
More than 600 workers are involved in the cleanup, which is expected to take up to eight weeks and cost $25-million. An additional $50-million is expected to be spent on restoring the city's tree canopy.
Ford has called a special council meeting, which will take place on Friday, to debate asking for financial assistance from the province. It is still unclear how much the city will ask for.
"I don't want to nail down numbers," Ford said. "I think the province should absolutely help out in the cleanup effort."
