The president and voting

Some say only if a tie.

A common misconception.

In fact, the chair may choose to vote any time his one vote would make a difference in the outcome, such as to break a tie (thus adopting the motion), to create a tie (thus defeating the motion) or in situations where a 2/3 (or other non-majority) vote is nearly, or just barely, achieved (thus reversing the outcome), as well as any time the vote is by ballot, and (as in your situation) in meetings of small boards.
