WATERVILLE, Maine (WABI) - Waterville City Council discussed the future of the former Sacred Heart Church Tuesday night and whether it can serve the community in a new way.

Councilors are trying to decide if the city should buy the building.

The church is currently vacant.

Councilors talked about whether the church could be used for housing, as a soup kitchen or a homeless shelter. It could also serve as a space for other community events.

Discussion then expanded to the homeless issue in Waterville as a whole, and the economics of the project.

No vote was taken.
