In November 2017, residents in Dallas County--including the Dallas County portion of Clive--voted in favor of the 1% Local Option Sales and Services Tax, which increased the combined sales tax on eligible sales and services from 6% to 7%. The new sales tax rate went into effect in July 2018. Since then, the City of Clive has been receiving a portion of the LOSST funds collected in Dallas County each month. The City has been using those funds for property tax relief, streets improvements, park and trail improvements, public safety facilities, and storm water improvements. Below is an outline of LOST funds the City has received, and updates on major projects being funded by LOSST.
