The zero-temperature $q$-state Potts model partition function for a lattice strip of fixed width $L_y$ and arbitrary length $L_x$ has the form $P(G,q)=\sum_{j=1}^{N_{G,\lambda}}c_{G,j}(\lambda_{G,j})^{L_x}$, and is equivalent to the chromatic polynomial for this graph. We present exact zero-temperature partition functions for strips of several lattices with $(FBC_y,PBC_x)$, i.e., cyclic, boundary conditions. In particular, the chromatic polynomial of a family of generalized dodecahedra graphs is calculated. The coefficient $c_{G,j}$ of degree $d$ in $q$ is $c^{(d)}=U_{2d}(\frac{\sqrt{q}}{2})$, where $U_n(x)$ is the Chebyshev polynomial of the second kind. We also present the chromatic polynomial for the strip of the square lattice with $(PBC_y,PBC_x)$, i.e., toroidal, boundary conditions and width $L_y=4$ with the property that each set of four vertical vertices forms a tetrahedron. A number of interesting and novel features of the continuous accumulation set of the chromatic zeros, ${\cal B}$ are found.
