Try Image->Mode->Indexed, and play with the number of colors to get it as small as you can manage while still looking good. Then save it, still using png format. Full-color pngs are large, but indexed png can be quite small. Cleaning up the noise from the scan, as you've been doing, can help it look good with a much smaller number of colors. Though it's worth trying the conversion to indexed before cleaning up the page; if the colors are similar, the indexed conversion might do a lot of that work for you.
