Environment Waikato chairman Peter Buckley has paid tribute to the late Sir Ross Jansen, the regional council’s first chairman from 1989 to 1991.

Sir Ross passed away on Tuesday night.

Mr Buckley said Sir Ross was well remembered as a chairman who had led EW through its formative years.

“On behalf of councillors and staff I would like to acknowledge his important work on behalf of the regional community and to express our sympathies to his family.”
