WEST WINDSOR, N.J. — A “FurBQ” party attended by guests dressed in animal costumes at the Twin “W” Rescue Squad building has drawn criticism from township officials after a couple openly engaged in unseemly behavior during the event and too many people crowded into the party, which drew a visit from the police.

Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh called the May 26 Memorial Day barbecue “inappropriate” and said the squad’s president, Mike Leahy, subsequently met with former township administrator Bob Hary and Police Chief Joseph Pica to discuss the event, which had been held on the grounds at least once before.

Leahy promised the barbecue would never take place there again, township attorney Mike Herbert said.
