A lack of customers and other loss of income is forcing tribal leaders to shut down the Comanche Nation Water Park in Lawton.
The tribe's economic development commission says the tribe's water park and several other unprofitable businesses will be closed.  40 tribal employees will also be laid off and the funeral home will be temporarily closed.
Total losses from 2006 to 2010 were listed as 5.4 million dollars with audits underway for 2011 and this year.  In addition, there are 550,000 in past due bills.
