HALLOWELL, Maine — Residents gave city councilors a variety of responses about the future of the city's fire station at a visioning session Sunday in City Hall.

Most people supported preserving the building. Some wanted to upgrade it and continue to use it as a fire station. Others saw it as an opportunity to have a museum downtown to hold many of the city's historic items.
